PATRICIA taught literature and composition before embarking upon her writing career. A lifelong fascination with British history and a chance, on-line reference to an unfamiliar English queen led to years of research, a summer history course at Downing College, Cambridge, and the penning of Shadow on the Crown and The Price of Blood, the first two books in her trilogy about the 11th-century queen of England, Emma of Normandy.
As writer-in-residence at Gladstone's Library in Wales, Patricia conducted research for the final book of her Emma of Normandy trilogy, The Steel Beneath the Silk.
Patricia lives with her husband in Northern California.
