Ryll Paul was born in Brisbane, Australia in 1951. She began writing Pebbles in the Road at age fifty five. It is Ryll’s belief that we are on a road that twists and turns with the unfolding of life. We come across obstacles, conflict and challenges, which she refers to as pebbles on life’s journey. They can become large, causing one to stumble, small pebbles can be easily overcome. Each pebble offers a challenge, defining who we become.
A note from the author
My first book, Pebbles in the Road, covers the first 37 years of my life. Its publication has been a defining point in my life. With friends and family telling me for years to write my story, the opportunity finally presented itself.
I remarried in 2003 with Wayne’s work taking us to the Middle East for the next 5 years. Having secured my late son Gavin’s medical records and having always been somewhat of a bowerbird, I filled a suitcase full of photos and memories, labelled as priority luggage and upon arrival in Bahrain set about using this time away to write my journal.
The dynamics of publishing were daunting at first but now that Pebbles is on the shelves, I am happy to share my knowledge with others. We all have a story to be told and I encourage any readers that have a desire to write a book to go for it
I have already committed to a children’s book as my next project. The draft is already complete and will be published in early 2012 under Nana Ryll.
I welcome communication from my readers and if you are passing postcode 4078 (Forest Lake, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia) do not hesitate to meet up for coffee.
