I am Paula Riley, an author and freelance writer/photographer based in Reno, Nevada, a beautiful place to live and not remotely near Vegas. Well, it shares the same state, but not quite the same state of mind.

I love what I do:

~ Freelance stories for magazines and newspapers.

~ Book doctoring; Preparation of manuscripts for Kindle or other eBooks.

~ Advice about preparing print-on-demand books through CreateSpace.

Monarchs on the Move -- a recent story of mine in the Reno Gazette-Journal. The idea came to me one day in the form of a tagged Monarch butterfly feeding at a blooming bush in our yard. I knew what that round paper tag was. I just had to get a closer look. Kazam-- a story was born. For more, click here. Or go to RGJ.com. Thanks!
A big thank you to Dr. David James of Washington State University and his northern Nevada volunteers for their input and cooperation. This is a bit of their story.
