Paula Clinedinst

Paula Clinedinst is the author of two children’s books: Fetch!, about a farm dog in the Rocky Mountains, and Chinook Dreams of Butterflies, about a wild horse who gets lost in a storm and longs for home.

Passionate about animals and literacy, Paula started Giddy Up & Read at a horse rescue in Colorado, where children can read to shelter horses, practicing their skills while socializing a shelter animal. She is also active in P.E.O., an organization that helps women achieve their educational goals.

Paula loves music, especially singing, and is grateful for all of the musicians who have allowed her to play with them.
