Paula Treick DeBoard

USA flag

Paula is a reader, writer, drinker of strong coffee and an all-around slave to public education. She wrote her first novel when she was nine years old, in the back seat of an orange 1977 Chevy Caprice station wagon with wood paneling. It was exactly as good as you might expect a novel written by a nine-year-old to be.

In the intervening years, Paula majored in English, taught junior high and high school English and earned an MFA in Fiction Writing from the University of Southern Maine.

Paula Treick DeBoard recommends
The Summer We Buried (2022)
Jody Gehrman
"Gehrman gets at the heart of secrets, lies andsuspicions."
The Children's Secret (2021)
Nina Monroe
"A child is shot at a neighborhood party, and so, with a literal bang, The Children’s Secret begins. As the story unfolds through multiple points of view, Monroe holds a magnifying glass to gun ownership, the claustrophobia of a close-knit community, and deep-seated cultural biases. Timely and thought-provoking."
The Good Liar (2018)
Catherine McKenzie
"In The Good Liar, the lives of three women become entangled in a single tragedy. With her compelling characters, whip-smart dialogue and edge-of-your-seat pacing, McKenzie asks how well we know those around us—even the people we love the most."
