Paula Rae Gibson was born in London in 1968. A photographer, singer-songwriter, author and filmmaker, she is the widow of film director Brian Gibson.
She travelled extensively before finding her way to survive was poetry, writing, photography and music. A book of her poems with photographs, Vision of More, was published by Forward in 1996. An album of her piano music Feeling the Cold soon after. These were followed by Diary of A Love Addict in 2006 and I'll Always Walk Away in 2007.
The poems turned into song and No More Tiptoes happened in 2004, with pianist Tom Pilling and Maybe Too Nude the year later, with Will Gregory of Goldfrapp and Martyn Barker of Shriekback. More recently 'You Gather My Darkness Like Snow Watch It Melt.’ with Jim Hart and Ivo Neame of the Loop Collective.
Her video ‘The Poet Without Tragedy’ won the prize for Best Music Video at the 2009 London Independent Film Festival.
This novella is her final take on losing her husband film director Brian Gibson and shows her moving on and back into loving. A play of the same name - taking an extract of the story – is scheduled to be read as a monologue at the Trafalgar, London, in 2012.
Paula now lives in Paris with her daughter and partner and continues to write.
