About the Author

After growing up as the high school principal's daughter in a small Ohio town (an adolescent s nightmare), Patricia Mathews inexplicably pursued a career in public education, working as a teacher, program coordinator, and curriculum and assessment designer. She currently has the best job of her life working behind the reference desk at her local branch library. Before getting caught up in paranormal fiction, her favorite readings were narrative nonfiction and character-driven fiction. Now, however, she can't resist the heroes and heroines of urban fantasy. She lives in northeastern Ohio with her two cats, and although she watches them carefully, she has never caught them in the act of shape shifting.

Format: Paperback
I think the important thing here is to remember that this was written as a reference book, not a "how to" book. It gives a lovely introduction into the genre and the subtypes of the genre. It is the perfect companion for librarians, literate book sellers and the like who need to know about and recommend a type of literature in which they may not be well-versed. A librarian who had never read paranormal books would be able to competently suggest a book if someone asked, "I like the humor in Janet Evanovich's books, but I'd like to try something with vampires..."

Remember -- this is a reference book!

I have to admit that I'm a bit biased because the author is my sister however by using Pat's classification system you can't go wrong in finding an author or storyline you will love. Remember this is a reference book to help you find the right paranormal book for you. It was actually written for libraries to help their staff make appropriate suggestions to clients. I love paranormal books but like a little humor and some nontraditional "paranormal cultural rules" and have found some great authors through this book. Pat also has a blog where she reviews new authors and books. The book has a review of the story line of the book or more likely books in the series the a rating based on violence, humor, sexual content etc. In addition she classifies by genre. Here reviews are spot on.

I was given the impression that this book would be helpful in my writing, but instead it listed all the books that other authors had published. It was a disapointment and over-priced.
