Paula joined the group fairly recently. We first spoke over the phone towards the end of last term. Then she left a comment on this blog although neither of us had, at this point made the connection that we were the same people. I just assumed she was from London, although she has actually moved down to Bristol fairly recently. Go and have a look at Paula’s website.(www.paulabowles.co.uk) The illustrations are really polished,(any publisher would be mad not to buy them off of her, preferably for large amounts of money) but also genuinely very sweet and endearing, which if you meet her is much like Paula herself. I think she must know, deep down that she’s a very good illustrater, but if you met her she’s so modest that you’d never know. Hope you have a great time now you’re down in Bristol Paula!
