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 three young adult Glimmer Books are romantic adventures set in an Ireland that might have been.

Westport, County Mayo (pictured below) provides the setting for The Rosewood Whistle and The Bogwood Horse, the first two books in a trilogy of adult contemporary romance (Book Three, tentatively entitled The Cherrywood Banjo, is in the works). A visit to County Sligo, her grandparents' ancestral home, inspired her chilling novella, a ghost story called Unholy Crossing.

Pat's favorite non-writing activities include cooking, hiking, reading, and traveling, especially to Ireland. She lives and writes in New Hampshire.
