‘The well-dressed man has an unpleasant shock in store for him.’
‘Don’t waste your dirty underwear – the stewardess will be glad to have it.’

Paula Harmon has written several mysteries, most them historical. Come and hear about her books and what she has discovered when lost in research rabbit-holes. From the real purpose of Girl Guides via a surprise in her family history to how you could (but perhaps shouldn’t) dye your hair or treat your poorly children, Paula will share some of the fascinating, and occasionally bizarre, facts she’s uncovered for her books, including several she’s had to leave out of her books because no one would believe them.

Paula Harmon was born in North London to parents of English, Scottish and Irish descent, who relocated to South Wales via several English country towns when Paula was eight. She graduated from Chichester University before making her home in Gloucestershire, and then Dorset where she has lived since 2005. Paula is married with two adult children and generally has several writing projects underway.
