Bio:


Pauline Nevins is one of 2,000 biracial children who were born in Great Britain during World War II, the offspring of African-American soldiers and white women. Many soldiers returned to the U.S. not knowing they had children. 


Pauline’s memoir, “Fudge: The Downs and Ups of a Biracial, Half-Irish British War Baby,” chronicles the difficulties of growing up as a person of color in an all-white family and within the overwhelmingly white population of Britain when racial insensitivity was the norm. “Fudge” was the kindest of the names Pauline was called. Her memoir captures the poverty of post-war Britain while tracing her journey to self-acceptance as she searches for the father she never knew. 


Pauline is a contributing columnist to The Auburn Journal, a California newspaper that reaches more than 9,400 readers each week.  Her second book, “Bonkers for Conkers,” includes many of her newspaper columns and the stories behind them.
