Patricia Charles remembers going to the public library when she was a small child. The Pascagoula library was only a block away. She wasn’t allowed to cross the street, so her older brother was delegated to take her. Of course, she wouldn’t let him carry her books. She was a big girl. Patricia remembers she had so many books she had to balance them with her chin. She also recalls crying when she had to return them. Books have been in her life as long as she can remember.
Her love of books eventually lead her to the theatre. She has a Master’s of Arts in Drama and Communications and a Master’s of Library and Information Sciences. Naturally she is a librarian, a medical librarian.
She is a member of the Romance Writers of America, Southern Louisiana Chapter of RWA and CelticHearts. In 2013 she won Best Historical and Highest Overall Score in the Dixie Kane Contest.
Patricia lives on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, having moved there from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Frodo, her large 13 pound Pomeranian, likes to lick her feet while she writes.
