Paulette Clay lives in Northern Indiana. A lifelong Hoosier she protects the waters of the State of Indiana as a career. Her soul, however, belongs to writing. An avid reader of fiction her tastes are eclectic as her bookcase clearly shows. An odd combination of Caleb Carr, Anne Rice, Jack London, Jane Austen and Shakespeare reside there. And of course there are three shelves dedicated solely to the master, Stephen King, whose books have been read into a dog-eared but much loved state.
