WELCOME ~ Bio
Born in Worcestershire, England, Patricia was five when World War II broke out. One year later, just after her sixth birthday, she was shipped off to a Preparatory Boarding School, where she remained until VE day – 1945.
Her memoir, "Dear Cedric..." [Link – read an excerpt] is based on those five years as a child evacuee.
Graduating from College in 1953, Patricia couldn’t wait to shake off the restrictions of Academe and explore the world she had hitherto only read and dreamed about. In the 50s, when aeroplanes still had propellers, the fashionable way to travel was by ocean liner. It didn’t take her long to join the Merchant Navy and revel in long sea voyages, whilst earning her keep in the Purser’s office.
In 1968, Patricia, her husband and their children, emigrated to Ontario, Canada–where she worked as a business writer and editor–and where she still lives. She continues to travel as much as possible, and enjoys writing historical/time travel romances. [Link–Read excerpts]
