Patricia lives in the midlands of Ireland. She is an avid crime reader so naturally she found herself writing in the crime genre. To date, Patricia has sold over ONE MILLION COPIES in the LOTTIE PARKER series.
A life changing experience in 2009, with the death of my 49 year old husband, meant I had to give up my career, and over the following few years, I rekindled my love of art and writing.
A few years ago, I decided to get serious about it. I joined The Irish Writers Centre. Started doing courses. I love reading crime thrillers so it was obvious to me to start writing in the crime genre. And let me tell you, it is not easy. A crime novel needs to be tightly plotted and plotting is the bane of my life. I prefer to write straight off the top of my head. Oh, Oh. Feels good when writing but then comes the editing. I lost 20,000 words in the process. But at least I am proud to say I got it done.
My debut Novel, The Missing Ones was published on March 16th 2017
The Missing Ones has been a bestseller in the UK, US, Canada and Australia. And it has sold over half a million copies worldwide.
