About Paula Tevis
A California native, Paula Tevis made many treks to San Francisco as a young girl before moving to her favorite city in 1983. After an eclectic but blessedly brief career that included stints in the computer and nonprofit sectors, she and her husband produced a couple of children in quick succession, and Paula happily relinquished the 9-to-5 world for the 24/7 one that parenting brings. Upon regaining consciousness, Paula recalled a childhood ambition and declared herself a writer. From her humble beginnings word processing cookbook manuscripts for a local publisher, Paula metamorphosed into a freelance copy editor and soon received her first break as a professional writer with Parenting magazine, crafting a column on kids who cook. Over the years, she has contributed articles and essays to Family Fun magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, Citysearch.com, Frommer's Las Vegas, Frommer's New Orleans, and Variety. She is the co-author of California For Dummies, 2nd Edition, and author of the Berlitz Vancouver Pocketguide and the soon-to-be-released Frommer's San Francisco with Kids.
