Patricia considers herself a very lucky woman. The eldest of four daughters, she grew up in a small town in northeastern Ohio. The family didn’t have a lot of money, but she says that didn’t matter, because what they did have was worth more than money — a happy home.
Her parents had a good marriage and they doted on their daughters. That upbringing is reflected in the stories she writes. As readers all over the world have discovered, her books are filled with warmth and love of family.
Today Patricia lives in Houston, Texas, and many of her stories are based in the Gulf Coast city. She has also lived in upstate New York, Southern California, northern Alabama, and Stockholm, Sweden. She says that no matter where she’s lived, she’s found that people everywhere are the same and want the same things: love and committed relationships.
Married to the same man for 40-plus years, she has three terrific children and three adored grandchildren. She and her husband currently share their home with two longhaired cats, Pete and Phoebe, and a backyard filled with squirrels, birds, and other critters they love to feed and whose antics keep them amused.
Her hobbies and other interests include reading, walking for exercise, going to the movies and the theater, swimming, and traveling.
