As Patricia’s Pen is taking a short break from the Tuesday Guest Feature I thought I’d fill you in with what I’ve been doing over the year, my publishing successes, and updates on works in progress. 2022 has been fruitful. Both in publishing and getting words down on paper.

Bound by a 100-year-old oath, seventeen-year-old, Françoise Dubois is forced to leave France and marry an English baronet. Will she find true love and happiness?
The Oath has sequel potential.
Fractured – Set in the early nineteen seventies – family saga (Book 1 of 3) Watch this space

Fractured (2) – Title to be determined
Opening in 1977, re-join Rachel Webster and Peggy Davies in this gripping saga.

Signed copies of all my books, poetry and novels, are available via my website shop HERE. Unfortunately signed novels are only available for posting in the UK.
If you prefer Kindle or outside of the UK then check out my Amazon Author Page HERE
All books may also be ordered via any good bookstore or ask your library to order them in if they don’t already stock it.
If you have read any of my books and enjoyed them, a brief review over on Amazon or Goodreads are really appreciated.
