A former psychotherapist, Paula survived the loss of her husband and young daughter in an accident in 1975. She was three months pregnant at the time. Since that time, Paula has written many books including her best-selling books entitled Gift of the Red Bird, Waking Up to This Day and When People Grieve. Her book, Song of Sarah, has been translated into eight languages and has been in print for over 27 years.
