Boston native Pat McDermott lives and writes near the scenic seacoast area of New Hampshire, USA. Her novels, which are mainly set in Ireland, include tales of action/adventure, romance, and fantasy.

The Glimmer Books, Glancing Through the Glimmer, Autumn Glimmer, and A Pot of Glimmer, feature Ireland’s mischievous fairies and a royal family that might have been had High King Brian Boru survived the Battle of Clontarf in 1014.

The Glimmer Books are “prequels” to her popular Band of Roses Trilogy: A Band of Roses, Fiery Roses, and Salty Roses (Book #4 is in the works).

A visit to County Sligo, her grandparents' ancestral home, inspired her chilling novella, Unholy Crossing, a ghost story set in Boston and Ireland in 1912.

Westport, County Mayo (pictured below) provides the setting for her contemporary romances, The Rosewood Whistle, The Bogwood Horse, and The Cherrywood Banjo, which feature Ireland’s music, myths, and scenery.

Pat’s favorite non-writing activities include cooking, hiking, reading, and traveling, especially to Ireland.
