It's a horrible stage of the shifting process when it's all in boxes, and then you see your life piled into the back of a truck. You can't help but wonder if you'll ever see it again.

Book shelves look kind of eerie when they're empty. Good to see boxes of books found there way into the kitchen though, to keep the limp tea towel company. At least the woven floor rug kind of cheers it up.

Safe and happy shifting


Hello Paula.

My name is Livia, and I am manager of a literary blog in Brazil (http://www.leiturinhas.com) and would like to have a copy of "Ruined" to the review and post to my brazilian readers.

I have not heard rights had already been acquired by some Brazilian publisher and would a great honor to help bring him to Brazil.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Paula my name is amber. I just recently read your book Ruined and I am a really big fan. I read the book within a week and I absolutely love it I really think that you should make a movie off of this book people would love it. I would support it 100%. The book is amazing I was so sad when I finished it. I can't get enough of it. I would love to see a second book of the Ruined. I would love to see how rebecca and her father and Anton turned out to be like after all of this happened did rebecca and anton continue their romance ? and will rebecca see lisette again ? and what would the girls have to say to rebecca about being in the parade and what happened with Marianne and her mother ... did rebecca come across them again and if so what happened? There are soo many unanswered questions that need to still be answered!! I love the book! If you ever make a movie based on this book I would love to play the role of rebecca haha or lisette I'm mixed with black and white ! Haha thank you soo much for creating such a fantastic book -amber

I reckon that moving house is one of life's worst expereinces. I hope by now you are happily settled on the other side of the Atlantic and will look forward to some pics of your new home. I hope all your books travelled safely.


Hi Paula, I wish you would get on your publisher's case about doing a reprint of your books. I tried to order Hibiscus Coast and Trendy but Casual through one of our leading bookshops here in Malaysia and was told I couldn't because apparently, they only published a limited edition. And the one copy of Ruined that the store was supposed to have, was magically missing.


Please update--we miss you, Tom, and Morris and want to hear what you're up to!

Paula. I am reading ruined I just started it it looks very good. You probobly don't read these but If you do. I'm a 15 year old girl who likes to read and write I'm not the best writer in the world and I'd love if you could give me some pointers. I know this is crazy and a longshot but just from reading the back of the novel and the first few pages you seem like an amazing writer.
