Paula Wall is the author of the national bestseller THE ROCK ORCHARD, as well as two collections of short pieces, My Love Is Free...But the Rest of Me Don't Come Cheap andIf I Were a Man, I'd Marry Me. The latter was a semifinalist for the Thurber Prize. She currently lives outside of Nashville in a converted barn on 150 acres at the foot of the Highland Rim. Her nearest neighbor is one mile down the road, which, frankly, is a little too close for comfort. Visit her website at www.PaulaWall.com.
