Patricia Veryan was born in 1923 and retired from writing in 2002. Growing up in London, she moved to the United States after WWII and later married a Californian she had met while working for the occupation forces in Frankfurt, Germany. She has written stories since she was able to read and write. While raising her two children she tried without success selling scripts for television.
Most of her books are not traditional romances but a historical with a diligently researched background. Another hallmark of the author is to group her novels around four "core" series by using the same personnel - often enough thus linking the "series". No book is without links and her fans have dedicated a lot of web pages to show the appearance of characters in in her novels.
