Pat Dunlap Evans was born in Michigan but "got to Texas as soon as I could." Her family lived in San Antonio and Dallas, where she attended South Oak Cliff High School and Southern Methodist University, eventually completing her bachelor's and master's degrees in English at University of Missouri, Kansas City.
After college, Pat stressed her way as a single mom through twenty-five years of varied advertising and marketing roles before retiring at last to write novels. She lives in the Lake Travis area with her second husband Dr. Bill Evans and enjoys travel, golf, volunteer work, sailing and the escapades and chaos of the couple's combined five adult children, five grandchildren and two Cockalier dogs.
Pat has written two novels, To Leave a Memory and Out and In, both available on Amazon and Kindle Direct Publishing.
