From the time she was a little girl and her grandmother used to tell her tales of the friendly “monster in the backyard”, who lived under an ancient pine tree, Paula Kalamaras wanted to be a writer. In 1993, after leaving a stuffy job, Paula became a freelance writer. For years she wrote short stories, novels, genre fiction and essays and non-fiction. Along with Paul Kraly, she started Scribes Unlimited, LLC, writing grants, technical manuals, reports, business plans, and articles, editing books, and doing research. She had her first novel “Exiles of Dal Ryeas” published in 2010, and received rave reviews. Currently, her newest novel “Shadows in Light: Book One of the Hidden Rims” is in the hands of her agent for publication.
Paula continues to aspire to have more best-selling novels, writing screenplays, and producing her own works. She loves reading, writing, swimming, horseback riding, seeing films and plays, and cooking. She loves police procedurals like the fictional “CSI” and “Criminal Minds”, and the fact-based “The First 48” on A&E, and “Snapped” and “Cold Justice” on Oxygen. Her favorite expression, which comes from the late great Will Rogers, is: “in order to succeed you must know what you are doing, like what you are doing and believe in what you are doing” And she does.
Honors & Awards
For someone who never wrote poetry in her life, “Frost Dancer” came to her one day, she wrote it, sent it in to contest, and it was published and awarded a special “Who’s Who” distinction.
Scribes Unlimited was going along at a might good clip, a new office location, new software, and so many new skills, including investor backing. The company was on the move.
The Professional Organization of Women of Excellence Recognized gave Paula a featured profile in their premiere issue, not just for her incredible writing but smart business sense.
