Paula Younger is a freelance writer and a librarian by profession (although not the shushing kind). Originally from Newcastle upon Tyne, she has lived and worked in France, Germany, Japan and Northern Ireland. She has lived in many different parts of England, from Northumberland to the West Country, her current location. She writes regularly on health, lifestyle, and travel amongst other subjects and enjoys uncovering stories wherever she finds herself. She has been writing non-fiction for over twenty years, alongside the day job. Her work has appeared in Emerald Insight journals, Focus on Alternative and Complementary Therapies, Health Information and Libraries Journal and Nursing Standard. She also blogs regularly for bilingual and multilingual Early Years publisher Mantra Lingua, based in London with offices in the USA, Germany, and Sweden. Paula also enjoys photography, particularly nature and landscape, and is always on the lookout for the world's best chocolate.
