Regal Crest Authors - Paula Offutt

Paula Offutt lives in the mountains of western North Carolina. She and her partner share an old house with dogs, cats, and a pot smoking moth in the attic. Paula believes that humor is what makes the world go 'round, although love is a close second. She surrounds herself with as much of both as she can.

Her first novel, a romance titled Butch Girls Can Fix Anything, won a 2008 Golden Crown Literary Society's award for Debut Author.

After six years of the dreaded "writer's block", Paula began writing seriously again. Her second novel To Sleep, Book One of the Soliloquy was a finalist for a 2014 GCLS award in the Science Fiction/Fantasy category. Her third novel, To Dream, Book Two of the Soliloquy, was a finalist for a 2016 GCLS award in the Science Fiction/Fantasy category.

To Dream

To Dream is Karen Miller's second journal that chronicles the struggle of a group of women in the future. Karen starts this journal as she and her friends begin the process of gathering their species together. They need to get to safety before the Humans find out just how different homosexuals really are.

The bonds of friendship between Karen and the others were forged during a time only they remember and tempered in the aftermath of a unique and harrowing experience (as told in her first journal To Sleep). It is stronger than anything the galaxy can throw at them. They are joined by new friends and the bonds expand, allowing them in as if they were part of it all along. It is this bond that helps Karen to survive, to do what needs to be done to ensure the survival of the species.

Plagued by bad sleep, odd dreams, and heavy responsibilities, Karen is pushed to her limits. The System seems determined to push her even further, even if it means causing her physical harm.

To Sleep

To Sleep is told through the journal of Karen Miller, a nurse and student from Philadelphia. The journal begins the night three alien ships appear above Earth. When Karen awakens, she is told Earth was destroyed by a space phenomenon called the Rift and she is to be the leader of a small group of women tasked with assisting their alien rescuers in awakening the four billion or so surviving humans who are in cryogenic suspension.

Each time Karen goes to sleep, she doesn't know exactly what it will be like when she awakens. The line between what is real and what is not real becomes so blurred that Karen and the other women can only trust each other. When reality is finally defined, the six of them learn truths that will forever change not just themselves, but every genetic homosexual on Earth.

Butch Girls Can Fix Anything

**Recipient of a 2008 award from the Golden Crown Literary Society, the premier organization for the support and nourishment of quality lesbian literature. Butch Girls Can Fix Anything won in the category of Lesbian Debut Author. Congratulations to Paula Offutt! **

Kelly Walker is known around town as the Fix-it Lady who can repair just about anything. That's true, except for the hole in her life left by the death of her lover, Anna. Her fix-it business provides the perfect hideout as she resolves other people's problems instead of focusing on her own shattered life.

Grace Owens, single mother, is determined to stand on her own two feet and make a fresh start for herself and her nine-year-old daughter, Lucy. Lucy has a goal of her own: she wants to master her math homework, and that is a hard task with a mother who doesn't understand division.

The three meet under a leaky kitchen ceiling. What each has to give, the others need. They must learn when to take risks and when to trust each other. Together, can they find the tools that will allow them to fix what most needs to be rebuilt?


**Available in both print and eBook formats.
