British by birth, Pauline is now a contented resident of California, although she admits to occasional yearnings for afternoon tea and historic homes.

Her debut novel, Saving Saffron Sweeting, reached the quarter final of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and was a number one Kindle Best Seller. The stand-alone prequel, Secrets in the Sky, is now available, with the third book in the series coming in 2016. Her work has been published by House of Fifty, Smitten by Britain and Alfie Dog Fiction.

When not writing, Pauline can be found getting the steps wrong in a Zumba class or calculating how many miles she has to run to justify an extra piece of cake. Her ambition is to sell enough books to cover the cost of flying herself and a reader to Lo

Hi Victoria,
It would depend on whether you've been to England before, whether you've already seen London, and how much time you have. But top of mind would be Cambridge or Oxford (probably not both, they're very similar!), plus Bath and a couple of the Cotswold villages. These places all feel very English, have incredible history and can be explored fairly easily on foot. The downside is that they can all get pretty busy with visitors.
All the best, Pauline(less)

Pauline and 2 other people liked Steph's review of Making It Up As I Go Along:
Making It Up As I Go Along by Marian Keyes
"Marian Keyes' feet are the same size as mine. And that is just one of the reasons I love her. She is funny. And she speaks the truth. When she writes about trying to break up with her hairdresser it is a story that almost all women can relate to...." Read more of this review »

If you love Marian Keyes, I can see only 3 reasons to dislike this book:
1) You thought this was a new novel, and instead find it's a collection of her essays and blog posts.
2) You object to authors and publishers making a bit of extra money by bundli

Hi B.B., I was born in Cambridge, lived in Aberdeen as a kid, then was working in London before moving to California. Parents still live in Cambridge so I get back fairly often.
