Patricia loves writing mysteries as well as reading them. She has several sleuths who have been published in short story form from 72-year-old, feisty Clarabelle Gilly, to twenty-three-year old Stacie Mercer and her dog, Bibber. Stacie is a paraplegic as the result of a skiing accident. Patricia also has a trio of fifth-grade, multicultural investigators, the Stanley Street Irregulars, which have been published in stories online. Her beginning readers e-book series features FAT CAT AND GRAY MOUSE, a duo that are friends not adversaries and have wonderful adventures.
