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)

So I got to thinking about how you can – realistically – stay somewhat productive when you’re sick. This is not a post for those with a serious or chronic illness, nor is it intended as medical advice. It’s also more appropriate for those of us who either work for o...

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.
