Paula-Michelle Trotter enjoys her Texas home with her husband. She is a doting grandmother of four. Wanting to give her two oldest grandchildren a special gift to honor the finalization of their adoption into the family, she wrote and illustrated a series of children’s books featuring their lives. She is proud of her sons who are in the United States Marine Corps and of both of her daughters who are wonderful mothers.

My best advice to new authors or anyone who wants to follow their dream is never give up and don’t listen to people who try to discourage you.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
The best advice I ever heard was to remember you can’t please everyone, even though, I still try.
What are you reading now?
I don’t have a lot of time to read but, if I do it’s usually whatever JA Huss or Kristen Ashley have newly released.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I would love to bring awareness and support in order to stop domestic violence and sexual assault and for now, I’ll keep writing great romance novels with a little comedy and mystery.
