Join me in BALI in 2024!

I've been wanting to continue my Bali Writing Retreats for so long now and it's finally going to happen in 2024!

I'd love you to join me on my Silent Warrior Writing Retreat, where:

  • I will take you to my favourite places that I write about in my book

  • we will have quality writing time to concentrate on our projects

  • you'll get guidance from me along the way (having self-published my first solo book and been a co-author in two other books, I've learnt a lot along the way that I can share with you

  • we eat delicious food

  • we have lots of laughs

  • you see the REAL Bali (I know the best places)


Please register your interest below and I will keep you up-to-date with details as they come to hand.


But wait, there's more!
I'm also hosting a retreat in VIETNAM!!

I'm heading to Vietnam in August (my 3rd visit) and will be sourcing a wonderful retreat space in Hoi An.

Hoi An is my favourite place. This ancient town is close to the beach, and has the bustling Thu Bon River running through the centre. This town is steeped in history, with gorgeous ancient French/Oriental architecture and beautiful coloured lanterns strung across streets and over the river. It's not only a shopping and food haven but a photographers paradise!


Bali is my soul home and I know it well. Having lived there twice for five months and visited there regularly over the past 10 years, I know all the great places to go! Whether it's shopping, beaches, rice terraces, ancient temples, gorgeous gorge walks, or incredible food, I know the BEST spots!

Here's what my guests in 2018 had to say:

"Wow...Our Bali holiday, amazing, wonderful and special. Our hearts are still a flutter with experiences we had.

Paula - thanks a million for being our tour guide and sharing your Bali life with us. We certainly covered some ground. Denpasar to Sanur - yummy food and massage. To Tembok in the east – luxurious beach resort on the coast, with more amazing food, massages and snorkeling. Down the coast to Amed for more snorkeling and relaxing by the pool, then inland to Sideman - unspoilt Bali in a beautiful valley of rice terraces. Across to Ubud for fabulous shopping, markets and bartering, you taught us how it’s done! Back to Sanur, and a stunning day trip down through Kuta to Uluwatu at the bottom.

Lots in between – Volcano’s, swimming, motorbikes, temples, amazing sites, adventures, great food, plenty of cocktails and most of all, fun, laughter and people. We feel privileged that we saw Bali through your eyes as we saw so much more than the usual tourist would.

Everybody asks us, ‘What was the highlight?’ experience and embrace this culture, so different from our own was magical. Bali treated us well. We shall be back!"

I hosted Writing Retreats there in 2015 and 2016 that were so much fun and so productive!

New Zealand

Living in the Bay of Plenty, one of the most beautiful areas of New Zealand, having the stunning Coromandel on my doorstep and knowing some special spots in the Hawkes Bay, Wellington and Wairarapa areas, I'm spoilt for choice in my own country as to where to host my retreats!

It's highly likely they will involve water and sand (I'm a beach gal through and through), with comfortable accommodation and delicious food.

If you want to stay in the know, you know what to do...
