Hello and welcome to my website!

I’m Pauline Tait, a novelist and children’s author, living and writing in Perthshire, Scotland. I write both contemporary romance with a suspenseful edge and children’s picture books and, although both genres could not be more different, both are a pleasure to write. My books are available worldwide in both paperback and eBook versions. Purchasing links can be found here.

When I’m not writing, I am out and about holding author events in schools, libraries, book shops, and festivals. Please feel free to contact me via my contact page if you are interested in holding an event.


Illustrated Picture Books

I’m currently working on a brand new picture book character. It’s all hush-hush at the moment, but she has been a pleasure to create and I’ve already planned future antics to allow this to become another trilogy.


Romantic Suspense, Second Chances

But first, I have a novel (or two) to finish! I’m most of the way through Abigail Returns, but having recently decided to turn this into a first in series, I’ve some tweaking to do.

I also had to put Skye Beckons (working title) to one side while travel restrictions prevented me from travelling to the Isle of Skye to continue my research but, having recently returned from the island, I now have both projects to finish and a goal of having them completed this year.


Author visits

I have been fortunate in that my writing has allowed me to reach out and encourage children through my school & library visits and bookshop & festival events. Having previously worked in learning support, I am passionate about our children’s futures and welcome these opportunities to encourage children in their own reading and writing; after all, both are essential to their future learning.

If you feel your child needs a little encouragement with their writing, my ‘Becoming an Author’ article might be for you. It answers the questions children ask me during my school visits and follows the curriculum. They will, of course, need a skeleton! 😉
