More About the Author
I write about real-world faith. Faith that isn't perfect, but is willing to struggle, to ask questions, and ultimately to answer the call to live beyond our limits. My blog is at www.paulawiseman.com
I was born during the Summer of Love in Ashland, KY, but I moved to Pedro, OH after I married Jon, and now we live in Robinson, IL. I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a bachelors degree in Chemistry. I had a teaching certificate, but went to work for Ashland Petroleum Company as a chemist in the R&D department until my firstborn came along.
I have three wonderful kids, a little dog, and a hateful cat.

I started writing almost as soon as I left my "day" job. Well, truth be told, I've been writing since I was a kid. I modeled my favorite stories, or wrote sequels to them. I wrote a full length novel while I was in college, and it currently resides in a dusty folder under my desk. I pursued writing for children and sold a story to Highlights Magazine. After a writing exercise, this plot began to form and this story began to nag at me, so in July 2005, I started work on the book that became Contingency. In the meantime, I had several devotional pieces published in Cup of Comfort books and one in a Tyndale collection called Life Savors for Women.
God is behind all of this. He has engineered every step I've taken in my life- from college, to work, to bringing Jon and me together, to my children, to the stories and the doors opened (and closed) in pursuit of publication. Every experience passes through His loving hands, approved and designed to bring about deeper Christ-likeness in me and glory to God. I have a deep passion for God's word because I know it's absolutely true and relevant.
