Born and educated in Boston, Massachusetts, Pat grew
up in a family full of music and myths that have found their
way into her stories. Her Band of Roses Trilogy and her young adult Glimmer Books are romantic adventures set in an Ireland that might have been. Westport, County Mayo provides the backdrop for The Rosewood Whistle, her first adult contemporary romance (a sequel is in the works for that). And a recent visit to County Sligo, her grandparents' ancestral home, inspired her latest book, a ghostly novella entitled Unholy Crossing.
Pat's favorite non-writing activities include cooking, hiking, reading, and traveling, especially to Ireland. She lives and writes in New Hampshire.
