Paula M. Ezop absolutely loves writing for children as it takes her to a place where all things are possible, a place where dreams come true and fantasy becomes reality, where bears can talk, mountains can move, dogs can sing, and alligators can dance. She brings all of the characters that exist in her mind to life, they become real, and she has the pleasure of sharing them with everyone who reads her books. Paula's inspirational columns "Following the Spiritual Soul" have appeared in Oconee Today, a South Carolina Scripps Howard publication, "Celebrating the Success of the Modern Woman" and "Esteem Yourself." She has contributed to Chicken Soup for the Caregivers Soul and she has written the foreword to Whispers of Inspiration, a collection of both poetry and prose gathered from voices around the world. She has also written numerous children's books. Paula holds the Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Elementary Education from Northeastern Illinois University. Her heartfelt and meaningful writing began as a means to overcome the loss of her husband. Paula has now written hundreds of articles and several books centering on life and faith. Her sustaining philosophy is that "we are more than the woman we see in our mirror."
