So sit and relax

 With your favorite  
 Vitamin Coffee by Your side  
 I hope to open Your senses To the poetry You're reading!


Paulie Dee is a native New Yorker that now lives in North Carolina. Writing poetry was something that occurred by chance when she joined a group that was for writers, thinking that she would be just a spectator.  During a writing challenge she decided to participate and the rest is history.

During her spare time, Paulie enjoys writing poetry about pictures she or her close friends find. Then she gives them the story for others to enjoy.  She loves spending time with her family and if it happens to include a dinner out...even better!




1. When and why did you begin writing? 
I started writing last year, I was part of a poetry group not thinking I was going to participate, just look, until one day I just decided to write something small, just for fun and from that day the words just flowed and I haven't stopped writing, it has been truly a blessing. 

2. When did you first consider yourself a writer? 
Wow, I still don’t consider myself a writer, once my novel comes out and readers say “yes, we like this” then I can really consider myself a “writer”. Right now, I see myself as the poet. Silly, I guess.

3. Do you plot out your books on paper? Or seat of your pants?
I have come to the conclusion that I can't plot per say, because it ends up differently from what I thought it would be, so I just sit and go with the flow. hope it looks and reads good. My poetry is easier for me to write, but definitely seat of my pants way of writing

4. Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
With my poetry I give a particular picture a story mixed in with life experience, it’s something I enjoy doing, my novel is purely what my characters want it to be, there might be some life experience but not too much. 

5. What books have most influenced your life?
Judy Blume, definitely influenced my life, from Are you there, God it’s me Margret to a book called Forever. I learned everything regarding becoming a woman from her books.  

6. If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
I would have to say, Rick Johnson, he has guided me from the very beginning, telling me to write, when writing was just a thought floating in my mind, but too scared to actually do. When I am in doubt he is the one that encourages me to overcome my doubts.  

7. What book are you reading now? 
Honestly, at the present time I’m not reading. I’m in a writing zone. 

8. What are your current projects?
I’m working on my first novel, In Search of a Muse that I hope to have for the end of the year.  I’m also brainstorming on a short story, not too sure when that will be out and hopefully maybe two poetry books. 

9. Do you see writing as a career?
Actually, that would be something I would like to do, hopefully one day I can make that happen.  
10. Is there anything you find particularly challenging in writing?
Yes, sex scenes are a challenge for me, I fear it being either too much or just not enough, I want it to be as realistic as it can be, I’m also shy writing it. 
11. Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work? 
I would have to say Jackie Collins, she introduced me to the first erotica at the time. I have been a fan since I was 16 years’ old.

12. Do you have any advice for other writers? 
To just write, if you feel it in your heart to write then please do so, I was one that didn’t think I could write anything let alone poetry, but I had wonderful friends that guided me and encouraged me to 
keep go even if I feel scared.

13. Which of your books do you like the most?
I like both books for different reasons, Journey Thru a Heart was my first poetry book published and Coffee with a Hint of Poetry is my first self-published book.  Both are special in their own unique way. 

14. Do you get nervous when you publish a book?
Yes, especially with Coffee, I was scared of screwing it up and I was blessed to have a dear friend ZorhaEdwar Edwards who is an author as well guiding me thru it.
