Born in Copiague, New York, Paula Michele Adams, known as "Twiggy," retired after working 28 years as the District Manager for a predominantly African American Volunteer Fire and Emergency Services Company and relied on positive quotes to get through her day. She has always been intrigued by quotes and gained enormous strength from them. Using them as her daily affirmations, she collected a myriad of thought provoking quotes throughout her life. While attempting to purchase a book that highlighted quotes written by African Americans, she could not locate one. She decided to put pen to paper and compile her personal collection into an inspirational book that would not only expose the profound spirit of African American people but uplift her community and the world. Paula is a published freelance verse writer of greeting cards, calendars and in anthologies for Blue Mountain Arts.
