About the author: 
From the northeast of England, Pauline Hayton worked as a probation officer in her hometown of Middlesbrough before immigrating to the United States in 1991 with her husband Peter. They have become sponsors of Mount Kisha English School in Magulong, a remote village in Nagaland, India.  All the royalties from her books support the school and help the children obtain a secondary education. She lives in Naples, Florida, a willing slave to four cats who adopted her in the Great Recession. Hayton is the author of nine books.
