Pauline, who used to live with her husband Clive in Cotland Acres, Meadvale, and is now living in Lanzarote in the Canary Islands, has just had her third book published.
Called Sometimes It Happens... the novel is about a woman who wins the Lottery.
Pauline said: “Sometimes It Happens... is about deception, lies, love and laughter.”
She said: “Sometimes It Happens... is about a woman who wins the lottery - but being rich is not the same as being posh, as Doreen Wilkinson quickly finds out when she takes her very first holiday with her 17-year-old daughter.”
She added: “But nothing prepared Doreen Wilkinson for the luxury five-star complex of Villas Bonitas - and nothing prepared Villas Bonitas for Doreen Wilkinson.”
Pauline said she hoped she has written the “perfect holiday read” which would have “the reader giggling all the way to the end.”
The novel follows Pauline's debut, Magnolia House, and her second book, Satchfield Hall, a story of power, love, lies and revenge spanning generations of a family, which was published last year.
Magnolia House, published in 2009, was also a tale of family betrayal, hopes and dreams.
Pauline's passion for writing grew after she finished studying for an Open University degree in 1992.
After her second novel was published, she said: “I had the Readers Group from Cotland Acres contact me and we've stayed in touch since.
“We lived there for many years.”
She said also fresh in her memory are her times in the Redhill and Reigate Artistic Roller Skating Club, and in her former job, working in the offices of the oil company Fina.
Sometimes It Happens... is available from Amazon in their Kindle section. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sometimes-It-Happens/dp/B0050K7NVE/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1306249740&sr=1-2
