She is a resident of northern California.


"Emotionally powerful from beginning to end, Paula Treick DeBoard's bold novel, The Fragile World, chronicles the heartbreaking dissolution of a family after tragic loss. Exquisitely told, this bold and moving story is a study in grief and the transforming power of love. Absolutely unforgettable." -New York Times Bestselling Author Heather Gudenkauf

"A heart-stopping series of events drives The Fragile World, as Paula Treick DeBoard skillfully alternates between a father and daughter dealing with tragic loss. The result is a gripping read, but one that delivers, by the book's end, a beautiful reminder of the resilience of love."

-Karen Brown, author of The Longings of Wayward Girls

"A coming-of-age tale about a family in crisis expertly told by Ms. DeBoard. The Fragile World examines how profound loss changes all who are forced to come to terms with it. Touching and compelling, it will move you."

-Lesley Kagen, New York Times bestselling author of Whistling in the Dark and The Resurrection of Tess Blessing.

"Assured storytelling propels DeBoard's first novel.... What most compels is the observant Kirsten's account of how a small town and a family disintegrate under the weight of the tragedy."

-Publishers Weekly on The Mourning Hours

"Rich and evocative...compelling."
