Paula K. Parker has been writing as long as she can remember. With a poet father, writer mother, and a story-teller grandmother, she has always been comfortable in the world of words. Early training in music and theater led Paula to a life-long love for the arts.

Paula blue 268 x 335A stint working in the public schools, along with seventeen years of home schooling her five children, resulted in not only a quick wit and a unique sense of humor, but also the ability to effectively communicate ideas on a broad range of subjects to a wide age of readers.

She is best known for her sparkling stage adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudicewhich has been performed internationally, Jane Austen’s Sense & Sensibility and  Jane Austen’s Emma.
