Paula graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from UCLA with a degree in Anthropology.


A Los Angeles native and original “Valley Girl,” she spent much of the summer of ‘65 trekking up to Sonny and Cher’s house (they invited her in to watch TV). Her poetic talents surfaced early: at the age of 15 she was a finalist in a Los Angeles radio station lyric-writing contest.


As the daughter of a TV comedy writer (her father wrote for such shows as The Honeymooners, The Flintstones and Gilligan’s Island), she enjoyed the rare privilege of attending closed-set filmings of her favorite childhood shows. She’s a former college English instructor whose background includes magazine reporting and TV documentary research/writing.


She is currently writing a book on TV comedy history for which she’s had the pleasure of interviewing such legends as Carl Reiner, Norman Lear, and James L. Brooks. She lives in Studio City, CA where she is a favorite “auntie” to several of her friends’ dogs.
