Charmaine Pauls was born in Bloemfontein, South Africa. She obtained a degree in Communication at the University of Potchestroom and followed a diverse career path in journalism, public relations, advertising, communication, photography, graphic design, and brand marketing. Her writing has always been an integral part of her professions.

After relocating to France with her French husband, she fulfilled her passion to write creatively full-time. Charmaine has been publishing novels and short stories since 2011. Two of her short stories were selected for publication in an African anthology from across the continent by the International Society of Literary Fellows in conjunction with the International Research Council on African Literature and Culture.

When she is not writing, she likes to travel, read, and bake lopsided cakes. Charmaine currently lives in the south of France with her husband, children, an adorable dog, and a dominant cat.
