Pauline Lawless

Pauline Lawless is an Irish author from Dublin, who, as she says herself, was a late-starter. A busy Mum of five (and now nine grandchildren), she was also a business woman and it was only when she retired in 2007 that she decided to try her hand at writing.
'Write about what you know', the pundits said, so she decided to set her first novel in a slimming club - which was something she knew about, as she'd founded and ran SuperSlim in the midlands, for over twenty-five years.
Her first book, 'Because We're Worth It', was snapped up by Poolbeg Press and to her delight was an instant bestseller. All of her books are about Irish characters. Mostly based in Ireland except for 'A Year Like No Other' which she set in Paris, a city she adores and knows well. It entered the bestselling charts at number 4. 'The Birthday Girls' she moved to Clearwater, Florida, a place she loves and where she spends winters.
Pauline's style has been compared to that of another popular Irish author, the late, great Maeve Binchy. Like Binchy, Lawless writes in a warm and chatty way and her stories are about ordinary Irish women so her readers really identify with her characters, which is perhaps the reason for her success.
Her latest book 'All At Sea' is about three Irish families who all meet up on a Caribbean Cruise. It has the same intrigue and adventure as her other books and is available now.
