Writing her first haiku in Oct of 2003 as therapy for a stroke, she had to look it up to find out what it was. She still isn't quite sure, but she continues to try hard. Paula lives in Houston Texas and the Florida Keys. She finds inspiration kayaking the mangroves and bayous. She recently started writing haibun and has a keen interest in collaborative work. She is divorced with three grown children and five fabulous grand babies. She tests out her haiku and haibun ideas by reading them to her old, badly behaved dogs. Approval is sporadic.
Awards and Other Honors: Honorable Mention, Japan-America 150th Anniversary Haiku Contest (2004).
