Drawing on the highs and lows of her tumultuous journey as a woman in the international performing industry, West Belfast born actor, broadcaster and singer, Pauline is hoping to inspire others to not make the same mistakes as she did by telling her story in ‘Am I Mad or What?’ The book tells of Pauline’s first hand experience of mental breakdowns, personal tragedy and overcoming struggles.

She also shares many happy memories and funny anecdotes in the book, including the heart-warming story of how she met her husband and fellow broadcaster, Robin Elliott and how a New York psychic conned her out of thousands.
