Paula McGuire

Trier, speaker, author, athlete

Paula McGuire is an author, speaker and everyday adventurer - but above all, a trier. A self-confessed bumbling idiot and recovering stress-monger, Paula lived for thirty years under a rock, somewhere on the outskirts of every social situation. She now spends all that nervous energy challenging herself to useless exploits and encouraging others to feel the fear, sit around for a bit, have a bit of a nap, then give it a go, you know, if they really want to.

Author of Quick Lit debut, The Between Lines, written in 94 hours and around the same number of cakes, Paula now wastes her time trying everyone else's jobs while avoiding her own. Oh, and training like an astronaut. Well, someone has to.
