About me

Paulette Mahurin is a Nurse Practitioner turned author. While in College she wrote two award winning non-fiction short stories. She recently published her first fiction novel, The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap, which takes place after the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde and focuses on the intolerance his prison sentence has on a small Nevada ranching town,in particular a lesbian couple. Historical references are brought in to fuel the hatred; the Dreyfus Affair, that divided France, Booker T. Washington’s Atlanta Address, and expansion of the Monroe Doctrine into South America. Profits from sales go to the first-no kill animal shelter in Ventura County, California, where she lives with her husband, Terry, and their two rescue dogs, Max & Bella.
