To pay the bills Pauline’s worked as a teacher, teacher-librarian, journalist, theatre publicist, radio producer, TV script assistant and lecturer in the Diploma of Arts (Professional Writing and Editing). She’s run creative writing workshops as part of Arts Victoria’s Artist in Schools program and tutored in the G.A.T.E.WAYS programs for talented and gifted children.
Cinnamon Stevens – Crime Buster (2016) was her first novel. Her second is Cinnamon Stevens – Ghost Light. Both are illustrated by Kat Chadwick and published in collaboration with Lilly Pilly Press. Crime Buster was favourably reviewed online and in Magpies magazine. It was added to the Victorian Premiers Reading Challenge booklist in 2017.
Previously Pauline wrote a number of plays for adults and teenagers. Many are held at the Australian Script Centre australianplays.org/playwright/ASC-472. Several primary school plays have appeared in the NSW School Magazine.
Like Cinnamon Stevens, Pauline lives in the Dandenong Ranges outside Melbourne.
