Hi, I'm Paula Martin and I write contemporary romance novels.
After some early publishing success with short stories and four romance novels, I had a break from writing while I brought up a young family and also pursued my career as a high school history teacher for twenty-five years. I returned to writing fiction, after retiring from teaching.
I live near Manchester in North-West England, and have two daughters and two grandsons. Apart from writing, I enjoy visiting new places and I've travelled extensively in Britain, mainland Europe, the Middle East, America and Canada.
My favourite place is Ireland, especially the west coast. Several of my novels are set in the beautiful area of Connemara in County Galway. Other settings for my novels include London, England's Lake District, Paris and Egypt.
I'm also interested in musical theatre, tracing my family history, and trivia quizzes.
I love to hear from readers, so if you'd like to leave me a message, please click here.
