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, was reviewed by Publishers Weekly as ‘an enticing read’. Sweet Pursuits is the third book in the series.

Pauline has also released a free book of short stories, along with Indie With Ease, aimed at helping other self-published authors reduce stress and boost productivity.

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

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)

What’s new in Saffron Sweeting?

Since the first novel was published, time has obviously ticked on, and I wanted the village itself to evolve alongside the stories which happen there. Even the books themselves have enjoyed new covers recently. Continuity and attention to detail is i...

B.B. Shepherd Hi Pauline. Thanks for friending me. What part of England are you from?

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.
