Born and educated in Boston, Massachusetts, Pat McDermott 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 novels, Glancing Through the Glimmer and Autumn Glimmer, are romantic adventures set in an Ireland that might have been. She is currently at work on an adult contemporary romance entitled The Rosewood Whistle, set in Westport, County Mayo.
Pat is a member of the New Hampshire Writers' Project, Romance Writers of America, and Celtic Hearts Romance Writers. Her favorite non-writing activities include cooking, hiking, reading, and traveling, especially to Ireland. She lives and writes in New Hampshire.
