Featured Author: Pauline Barclay

I’m beginning a new venture on this blog over the next few months, where I hope to feature different authors and display one of their book covers on the side bar for the month in which they appear.

So to start us off, I’m delighted to welcome independent author, Pauline Barclay, who as well as being a prolific writer is lucky enough to live on one of the lovely Canary Islands. Pauline is a brilliant blogger who takes part in many online forums and blogs, and she is always helpful to other writers. Her three published books have already gathered a huge number of five-star reviews on Amazon Kindle.

Hello Pauline, please introduce yourself!

Years ago I gained a BA (Hons) degree from the Open University, today I spend my time writing fiction.These days, I live on the beautiful island of Lanzarote with my husband and two rescue doggies and it is a wonderful place for inspiration to write. Though born in Yorkshire, UK, we have lived in Suffolk and Surrey and before moving to Lanzarote, we lived in Holland in the beautiful town of Leiden.

I have three published novels, Magnolia House, Satchfield Hall and Sometimes It Happens… In between marketing and all my other commitments, I am busy with my fourth novel!

You can find out what I get up to at my blog and website

Pauline’s Latest Book

Satchfield Hall

When the news reached Henry Bryant-Smythe about his daughter’s indiscretion, he not only dealt with it, but stamped on it with such a resounding thud, that the consequences ricocheted through the years and well into the future. Henry Bryant-Smythe cared nothing for the consequences of his actions and even less for the feelings of those involved, with the exception of his own, and these he cosseted.

Celia Bryant-Smythe’s disgrace set in motion events that would affect the lives of many people, taking decades to unravel. Lives would be lost and destroyed and it would take until the death of the one man who had callously started it all, Henry Bryant-Smythe, until it was finally over.

Satchfield Hall is not about gentleness, tranquillity and privilege; it is about power, love, lies and, in the end, revenge.

A sweeping saga set in 1942 through to1986

Available now from Amazon Kindle

Thanks for visiting today, Pauline, and all the best with your novels.

Great idea Rosemary. I'll keep popping by to see who's visiting your blog.

I adore the colours and image of your book cover Pauline. It'd make me pick it off the shelf without a doubt!

Very well done! : )

I like the idea of what you have for your blog. Good on you Rosemary. I like to know what's happening 'out there' in regards to writers and their novels. I have to say Pauline's book sounds like it would be a very interesting read. Congrats to Pauline on her accomplishments :-)
