A precious little girl wants to be a princess and turns to her Mimi to find out how to make this happen. I am especially touched by the assurance at the book’s end that Nevaeh (by the way this is Heaven spelled backwards) is, indeed, already a princess, and has been since the day she was born
My four-year-old granddaughter and I had the most wonderful time reading this sweet little book together and she couldn’t get enough of it, asking me to please read it again and yet again. The illustrations and colors are very princess-like and delighted my senses, as well as those of my granddaughter.
Ms. Harper has a wonderful sense of what a child can relate to and also what they are interested in reading. I love the Christian message that is implied in the story, as well.
I highly recommend Princess Nevaeh for the budding princess in your life!

About The Author
It is my pleasure to welcome Paulette Harper, author of Princess Nevaeh: Lessons on Self-Discovery, to Room With Books.
Paulette, what do you do when you aren’t writing?
When I’m not writing, I’m working. I am self-employed and enjoy the pleasures of working from home. My businesses allow for me to engage with authors as I promote them with my business at Write Now Literary Book Tours. I also enjoy reading, traveling and listening to jazz.
Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?
Yes. The Bible. I found in my early years growing up that The Bible had answers to every question in life. I found reading The Bible help guide my life and it help me keep focus. I learned that through the studying and applying of the scriptures that God had a purpose for my life and it was up to me to discover it.
Can you tell us about your challenges in getting your first book published?
One of the challenges I had was not knowing if I was going to self-publish or publish through traditional channels. I hadn’t learned too much about publishing when I wrote my first book. I was so excited about writing one that the thought about getting it published finally hit me near the end of writing it (I have learned since then).
If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
If I could have a superpower I would choose Danger Warning Power: A precognitive ability warning me of incoming danger. Having this sense would be a boon to everyday life. But when it comes to my superheroing career, it means I’d always have a leg-up on my opponents. No more surprise attacks, no ambushes, I’d always know when the enemy was coming and it would allow me time to create a defense.
What was your first job?
My first job was at Jack in the Box. I believe I was sixteen. I learned early how to be responsible and save money.
What types of books do you write and who is your target audience?
I write Christian Fiction, non-fiction and children books. When writing Christian Fiction my audience are those readers who like plots, twists and turns, oh yeah plenty of drama. My non-fiction audience consists of those who want to be inspired, empowered and challenged spiritually. And my children books reach anyone who has a childlike heart.
Out of all of your characters, which is your favorite?
In my Christian Fiction book, Living Separate Lives, I created a character named Jordan. Jordan was humble, yet strong. She was quite and possessed inner peace. When she was faced with some sort of challenge in life she didn’t allow her emotions to control her response.
What does your writing schedule look like?
I try to write daily. Either I’m working on a book project or/and writing articles. I don’t have a particular hour or place that I write.
Do you use your OWN experiences?
Yes. I do. For both my fiction and non-fiction books. My experiences are some of my best stories.
Was it easy to pick the title for your book?
Yes. My latest book Princess Nevaeh: Lessons on Self-Discovery, was very easy to pick. My oldest granddaughter’s name is Nevaeh. She inspired me to write this book especially for her.
What profession you would choose if you were not an author?
If I was not an author, I’d like to be a Psychologist. The majority of psychologists are involved in some kind of therapeutic role, practicing in clinical, counseling, or school settings. Many do scientific research on a wide range of topics related to mental processes and behavior.
What are you currently working on?
Currently I’m working on another children’s book and a Christmas novella.
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? Black walnut
Night owl, or early bird? Early bird
Roller Coasters or Water Rides? Water rides
Swimming in the ocean or a pool? Floating in pool
Walking or fitness club? Walking
Any last words?
