Paula Houseman thought her life was, well ... meh. Until she started fiction writing. Memories flooded back and she realised her existence had not been mundane at all; it had been bloody ridiculous!
And little wonder. Her muse is the potty-mouthed goddess of obscenity. Paula rediscovered this butt-ugly immortal while she was researching her university Honours thesis—fossicking around in ancient mythology, home to the archetypes of modern-day reality.
She, who embodies a holy kind of dirty, showed Paula the absurdity of the human condition and reminded her about the healing value of laughter. This irrepressible force that has the whip hand in Paula’s psyche is responsible for the bawdiness in her books, 'Odyssey in a Teacup' and 'Apoca[hot]lips'.
