Pauline Chandler - Author

Pauline Chandler was born in Nottinghamshire. After her student years in London, Pauline became a teacher and now teaches children with special needs. She began to write seriously during a year's break in Cornwall.

Her early short stories were published in local and national magazines. Dark Thread, her first novel, was published by OUP in 1998. Her second novel, Warrior Girl tells the story of Mariane, cousin to Joan of Arc, an orphan whose parents have been traumatically murdered by the occupying English army. Her voice gone, she has nothing left but the prayer book, badge and ring bequeathed to her by her father.

Pauline lives in Derbyshire with her husband. They have three sons, a doctor in California, a guitarist in an up-and-coming rock band, and a chef.
