Hey, my name is Paula Mowery. I'm a pastor's wife and a mom to a college student.
God called me about five years ago to be a writer. On any given day I'll tell you that this is a humbling call as well as a thrilling one. I absolutely love to weave God's truths into my fiction stories. Now, don't get me wrong. I usually have to learn these truths first before sharing them through my characters with my readers. I'm often hard-headed (no comments from the family peanut gallery) and require God to drive home some of these lessons. This is one reason why you'll find some of my books include Bible studies at the end.
God has blessed me with a supportive husband, though he doesn't often "get" my fiction mindset. I'm also blessed to have a daughter who has dubbed herself one of my groupies as well as my unofficial agent.
The Lord has richly blessed my works. Be The Blessing won the 2014 Selah Award in the novella category. The Prayer Shawl, contained in the book, Legacy and Love, was a finalist in the Carolyn Readers Choice Awards. For Our Good has received great reviews and an endorsement from my friend and fellow author, Nancy Mehl.
I'm also blessed to be an acquiring editor for Prism Book Group. Through this position I have met other Christian authors, wielding their influence for the Lord. I've also been honored to teach at Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. I've enjoyed speaking at women's conferences and retreats.
But more than any other role, I'm just a sinner saved by grace, trying to leave a legacy of faith to those I have influence over. I pray the words I write might spur you on in your Christian walk.
Your Sis in Christ,
