Wondering what unites 50-plus books of mystery, romance, women’s fiction? My readers–Patricia’s ReadHeads–say it’s strong characters you’d like to know, touches of dry humor, smart plots, connected stories, and settings that make you want to move in.

Give my Authors Love Readers podcast a try. It’s conversations between authors about how and why we create our stories, asking questions readers want to know. Fascinating for readers, a goldmine for aspiring authors.

Happy reading and listening! And feel free to read more about me here.
