Milcah was born to rule along side an evil mother. Milcah's father was taken against his will and forced to give up his seed to produce a child with unimaginable powers. At a young age she was taken away from the only home she knows and forced to forget, again and again.Raised by a detached stepmother, Milcah learned to depend on herself and her best friend, Mary for support. When Mary suggest a vacation, with a scenic route, to the Grand Canyon Milcah believes she is finally getting the chance to see outside her small town. Packing a few things and climbing into her old beat up car, she never imagined she would find a new side of herself.

Lost on a back road, Milcah meets her destiny in a small town named Beacon. When her mind is unlocked, she finds she has a past that will lead to the salvation or damnation of the world.

This is book one in The Witches Amulet series.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
            Yes. I have always had a thing for the written word. As a small child I was unable to communicate because of my speech impediment. I learned to communicate in different ways and one way was to write down what I wanted. After a while I started writing down the things that appeared in my over active imagination and demanding my siblings act them out.
            For a few years I gave up on my writing and tried to be "normal" and get a "normal" degree. Ended up leaving school and rethinking what I wanted to do. Finally graduated with my B.A. in journalism and decided to use what I have learned to write my own stories again.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
            Concentration. I don't have kids or a husband but I still find myself distracted. In school I had to be put into a quiet room with no distractions in order to do test. Now I find that I have to have the house to myself, no roommates. If something goes bump or even a breath of a sound happens my mind tells me to go and investigate.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
            I have to say my best friend, Savita. She doesn’t even read the type of books I write yet she printed out my second ugly draft and sat down to read it. I cried when I got it back, she had marked it up like a two dollar whore. Now I love her for it and hope to send her my next book.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
            I am working on book two in my series "Witches Amulet", writing a twelve part mini series for my newsletter and writing a post apocalypse alien series. I know it seems like a lot but my mind is flooding me with ideas. I figure I should work on at least two WIP so I don't get a writers block.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
            I seriously love reading. I think its one of the most distracting things out there. If I one click I will read it. I do not understand people buying books and not reading them. Right now I am in between books but I next on my list is Primal Hunger by Valery Twombly.

Paulina is a small town girl with big dreams. She is the second oldest of three talented siblings.
As early as three she was directing her family around acting out whatever current story was in her head. At four between her older brother and her, a whole universe was created which the younger siblings were introduced into as they were born.
Her natural ability to tell a story took her down many paths. She wrote plays, poems, small children books and short stories all before she entered high school.
When picking a career her councilor told her writing was a dying art and so she went to school for veterinarian science. Three years later she dropped out of university and enrolled in the local community college with a major in journalism
In 2008 she graduated with her BA in Communication/Journalism from Cal State Fullerton.

Life happened and her dreams were put on hold until 2013 when she started a review blog. This year her first book in her Witches Amulet series will be released.
