Paulina Rael Jaramillo has a master of arts degree in rehabilitation counseling from California State University, San Bernardino. Paulina was born and raised in New Mexico where her family roots are deeply entrenched. In 1598 her ancestors came to the “New World” and in 1610 helped establish the settlement known today as Santa Fe. She began her writing career in 1991 as a contributing writer for several regional and national publications. In 2008 she wrote her first book, A Time to Heal: Grief Recovery Guide and Workbook and a follow up book in 2009 titled, Life Interrupted: Grief Recovery Guide and Workbook. Her most recent book, The American Southwest: Pride Prejudice Perseverance (2010), summarizes the history of the various cultures that have populated the southwest from ancient time to the present.
