PaulaMy name is Paula Bardell-Hedley and I was born and bred on the coast of North Wales. I am a nature lover, theatre goer and an avid reader of books.

I was founding Director of my own company, which my partner and I ran successfully for 26 years, however, my true love has always been reading and writing. Indeed, after first leaving school, I worked for a year at my local library on one of Margaret Thatcher’s now infamous YOP schemes!

I had great fun as the English Culture Guide for About.com (now Dotdash) from 1997-2001, quickly building up a lively and loyal band of readers from all corners of the globe. When the Company axed its entire Cultures’ network in September 2001, I became the English Culture, Poetry and Freelance Writing Correspondent for All Info-About – an online community created by ex About.com Guides – until its sad demise in early 2008.

I have also dabbled as a columnist, critic, editor and content provider. My work has appeared in a variety of magazines, newspapers and digital publications ranging from Country-Side and Entomologist’s Gazette to Record Collector and Women’s Independent Press.
