About Paula

About Paula: Welcome to PaulaCasill.com My name is Paula Casill and I am a Christian nonfiction author and speaker living just outside of New York City. I am an active member of an amazing church, a serious night owl, a constant coffee drinker, and an avid reader. I firmly believe that Christians are called to actively display the power and love of God in their lives. To that end, I love finding ways to make the Word of God accessible and practical to everyday people, and most of my writing reflects that passion.

About Her Books: Like most writers, I have been actively writing and blogging regularly since I can remember. In 2012 I published my first books, a series of devotional teachings, and I have been writing, publishing, and helping others to do the same ever since. Visit My Books for a full list of my available books.

About This Blog: When God first gave me a message for the world, and a burning desire to see that message shared with as many people as possible, the only possible solutions seemed to be “write a book.”  At the time I didn’t know how to write, what to write, or even where to begin.  I certainly didn’t have the first clue about what it would take to see that book in print.

Nevertheless, from those simple, naïve, and humble beginnings, the Lord has taken me on a journey of discovery and growth. I wrote and re-wrote and re-wrote until the words on the page matched the message in my heart. And while I wrote I learned about the vast, shiny, complex, and fascinating world of indy publishing.

I researched, I read, I learned, and then I put it all into practice. Some of it has worked. Some of it has drastically failed. I started this blog in order to share a bit of what I’ve learned and experienced along the way, both as a writer and as an independent publisher.  I’ll share little snippets of what God has placed on my heart at any given time, as well as some (hopefully) practical advice for other writers who are on similar journeys.

There are, of course, many blogs and websites out there that can give you the same information that I can. I don’t pretend to know anything special or different. But the story of my experiences, while not unique, seems worth telling. I hope you find the information here helpful, inspiring, or otherwise useful.

God bless!
