Author Interview – Paula Renaye

Are you a city slicker or a country lover? I really like being close to everything these days. I grew up living away from town, plus all the years of mountain living in Colorado, and even the half-hour from town years here in Arkansas, have made me really appreciate convenience. Who knows what I’ll want to do tomorrow, but today, I’m loving easy city condo living a few steps from the lake.

Do you have any advice for writers? No matter how good you think your book is—or fabulous your friends and mother say it is—it probably isn’t as fabulous and flawless as you think. Hire a qualified professional editor to make sure you put your best foot forward “literally” speaking.

Do you have any specific last thoughts that you want to say to your readers? Living the life you love is possible, you just have to be willing to do the work. Yeah, it won’t feel good at first—and it would be easier to read an inspirational book of fluff stories to give you warm fuzzies—but if you want to change your life, you have to do the work. The good news is that it’s only hard at first. Once you get past that first look in the mirror, it gets easier to say, “Yeah, I did that and I’ve learned, and now I’m doing this.”

What’s your favorite meal? Isn’t it funny how as we change our minds our taste buds change too? This past weekend, I discovered that I love sushi! Who knew! I had tried a few things before and didn’t like any of it, and really, eeewwww. This time, however, I tried some different things and I was sold. I’m not yet ready to say it is my favorite meal, but it was my favorite meal this weekend!

What other jobs have you had in your life? My first year in college, I had three jobs, all paid positions. I worked three days a week at an orthodontic office, was co-editor of the university yearbook and copy editor of the university newspaper. I’ve been a “security guard” who cleaned toilets and picked up trash at a botanic gardens and I’ve been an Environmental and Health & Safety Consultant, which, now that I think about it, are kind of the same thing.
