Pauline Wharton was born in Cumbria and studied English and History at the University of Keele. She has an MA in Local History, based on her research into yeoman families living in the Windermere area. She taught in the UK and abroad, and for some years served as a local councillor. For the past twenty years she has travelled, mostly in Portugal. She published her first novel, ‘Mind, Body and Rosie’ as Kindle ebook in 2016.
Pauline’s novels are intended to lighten your mood on dull evening or make a train journey or a commute to work pass in no time. Although they touch on serious issues such as sexual harrassment and PTSD, they are intended to be entertaining and are full of interesting characters and amusing situations, as well as strong plots.
Pauline is interested in family history, particularly the Philipson family who were clockmakers in Ulverston in the early nineteenth century, and who originated in Windermere. She has just published a book, ‘The Disappearing Yeoman: Windermere 1640-1841’, based on her research.
