Pat lives in South Florida and enjoys using the area as a setting for her writing. The variety of cultures and environmental dangers provide inspiration for surprising plot twists. The reader never knows when a shark or alligator might appear on the scene and cause some mischief, and there are enough strange characters living here to fill volumes of books.
Pat has had a life-long interest in science and usually tries to incorporate some aspect of it in her stories. In addition, she has developed an interest in comparative religions which will be evident in the Annie McDoogan series. At the moment, she plans to write 10 Annie McDoogan novels and then switch to science fiction. Things may change, but that's the plan. Science fiction will give her the opportunity to create new worlds that obey her rules. What can be better than that?
