About MePaula Welch
If you asked me ten years ago, is it possible to change your profession in your mature years, I would have said it would be difficult. But after completing my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Creative Writing and Literature, it gave me the skills and confidence I needed to start writing down all my novel ideas which had sat in my back pocket for many years.
Whether my writing will become my actual profession or just a hobby, time will tell. But what I can say with 100% certainty, if you want something bad enough, don’t tell yourself you can’t do it, and more importantly, don’t give up. From small things, big things grow.
On the planet Lamatra, war breaks out between feuding colonies, a spaceship called the Zephyrus, escapes with a precious cargo of hundreds of children. Now on the run, they space through space for nearly two years, seeking a refuge until it is safe to return home. During that eventful journey a young cadet, Lathaniel Labarok, is appointed the executive officer, and is trained throughout their journey by Captain Devaris, who unbeknownst to Lathaniel, is dying…
About My Books
My first published novel, A River of Fortune, was actually my second novel written. This is an adult fiction, and I would categorise it as women’s action / romance genre.
My second novel, which is about to be published, called The Interlopers, which is a children’s speculative fiction genre. I initially wrote this as a short story for a university course, but decided to expand it towards the end of my degree, to prove I could write a full length novel.
My third novel, which is in the editing stage, is called Cloud Piercer,
and is an adult action / adventure genre novel, set in the Mount Cook National Park, after a plane crash.
My fourth novel, I am currently writing, and I still can’t decide on the title yet, so you’ll have to wait until I have decided on what to call it, but it is another adult fiction, black-comedy with a murder mystery thrown in. But that could change as every writer knows, your novel has a life of its own and tends to want to go in its own direction, than the one originally intended.
