paulette harperWhat is one thing that no-one would usually know about you?

People wouldn’t believe that I’m an introvert. The things that pull me away for the core of who I am is writing and speaking.

What did the best review you ever had say about you and your work?

“Paulette’s artistic ability at drawing a clear resemblance of is a gift. This book, Completely Whole, is ideal for a small group women’s Bible study class, as well as a personal motivational read! Each chapter clearly aligning with the passages of Scripture that are included, will bring you to a point of deep reflection of what needs addressing in your heart. Through challenges and changes, Paulette encourages us to embrace what God wants to do in our lives! I encourage you to contact Paulette Harper and get a copy of this book for your next women’s study group and/or retreat.” –Angie Knight

What is the single biggest challenge you faced when writing your book?

My single biggest challenge I face when writing is staying focus. With other distractions pulling for my time it takes sheer determination not to stray away from my goals and deadlines.

Do you have any hints or tips for aspiring writers?

Yes. I do. As a writing coach one of the things I share with aspiring authors is to make sure they budget for publishing and marketing their books. It can be a bit surprizing how much things cost, and if they are not prepared, they will take short cuts that will cost them more in the end. Also, I encourage aspiring authors to build a platform before their book is published. I have seen so many authors wait until the book is published and then start promoting it. You want to create the buzz for your book before it is published.

Are you jealous of other writers?

No. Not at all. I rejoice when I see another author published a book. I believe there are plenty of readers for everyone. Our job as authors is to find our own audience and create our own voice.

Where do you find your inspiration?

I find my inspiration from reading other books, watching TV and or listening to the radio. My ears are tuned in to words. As a writer, reading the works of other helps me to develop my skills and grow.

Tea, Coffee, Water, Juice, Wine or Beer … which do you prefer when writing?

Well it depends on when I’m writing. In the morning I prefer a nice cup of coffee but in the evenings it’s water.
