Novelist, and mother of famed journalist and investigator Jim Marrs Jr, who amongst other notable achievements, served as the chief consultant for the Oliver Stone film "JFK"(1991), which was based upon Jim Jr's book entitled "Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy"(1989)
"Pauline Draper, had always lived in Fort Worth. Her daddy, who worked on the Texas-Pacific Railroad, died when she was only 12, leaving her and her mother to fend for themselves. Pauline's mother bought a house in the center of town, on College Avenue, and opened a boarding house. James Marrs and Pauline Draper met on a blind date, as best Jim, Jr can recall. Years later, Jim Jr would meet his wife, Carol, the same way."
"James and Pauline were devout Baptists; they did not drink or smoke and even frowned on dancing. But, their son Jim, Jr says, they were never judgmental or strict. In 1979, Pauline Draper Marrs even wrote a romance novel titled "Second Season", published by Fawcett (and, in France, by Harlequin). The torrid little book features a hero named Jim and a heroine named Carol[alludes to son Jim Marrs, Jr and his wife Carol]."
"Pauline died at Jim Jr's house as they cared for her for years and years"[quoting Maritha Gan)]
