Circle Book

My New Novel: Circle

I have been involved in women’s issues for over 50 years. I was trained by the state of New Jersey as a volunteer with the police department on a domestic violence crisis intervention team, volunteered also on a rape crisis team with the local hospital and served on a women’s hot line called Women In Self Help. My mother taught me at a very young age to give back to the community. When my husband died so suddenly, I was shattered and could no longer stay in New Jersey. I had choices to make and moved to New York City to create a new life. Family and friends are my emotional transfusions, and I am so grateful for all I have in my life. With age, wisdom sometimes arrives at the same time, and I wish to pass on some of my experiences and observations.
I designed a line of clothing called Sensuous Sweats and was featured in the New York Times and Harper’s Bazaar, and shop in my closet. I have practiced yoga for over 35 years, and been a vegetarian for as long. Also in the process of trying to get an 80,000 word novel that I wrote with my co-author published. I have written articles on grief and interfaith issues, on .
The purpose of doing this blog is intended to be an inspiration to men and women of all ages. Many subjects will be explored. I appreciate and welcome all comments and will reply.

  1. Your bio is very impressive. And you write so well. What ever happened to your book? Today, you don’t need a publisher. I recently read in the Wall Street Journal how so many people are now just doing it on line. After my book was published, I found a man who converted my book into an ebook for the Kindle very reasonably. He would have done it for the Nook too but I didn’t follow through with that option.

    If you go to, you can publish thru them, and probably thru the Nook too.


    • Thank you for your comments and compliment. Wonderful chatting with you as well. Read the article last month and seriously considering going that route. Will keep you posted. Love back..

  42. Hi Paulette!

    My name is Elise and I’m currently working with NYC casting company Casting Double. We specialize in casting ‘real people’ for various forms of media. We are currently casting documentary subjects to be part of a doc series produced by The Front (an award-winning and female run production company) and a major film & TV studio. We came across your blog and New York Post profile with Ronni Verebay via research and wanted to reach out and see if you might be interested in this project.

    The doc series centers around female pleasure and sexuality, looking at it through the lens of science and culture, in a joyful, curious and cinematic way. We’re looking to cast several individuals who would be interested in being interviewed about their own experiences, share their unique stories and perspectives, and help expand our collective understanding of how we experience our bodies, pleasure and sexuality. We’re including the project details and more information about the casting process in this link:

    Given your experience having honest and insightful conversations around female sexuality and pleasure, we wanted to reach out and see if you and Ronni might be interested in being considered to participate and/or giving us any advice on our outreach. We’re casting several parts and we’d like to make this opportunity available to as many individuals as possible.

    Thank you kindly in advance, and I look forward to hearing from you!



    • Hi Elise,
      Read your comment with great interest . I spoke to Ronni and she too is interested . I’ve always been involved with women’s issues and a great believer in practicing self love.
      I would enjoy connecting and talking with you. Thanks for getting in touch. 212-535-1046. I look forward to talking with you.
      Be well, Cheers, Paula
