Patricia Barletta is an award-winning author of historical and paranormal romance fiction. After a fulfilling career teaching English Literature in high school, she decided to go back to school herself and obtained a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing at Stonecoast (University of Southern Maine). When she's not at a yoga class doing her best downward dog, Patricia is usually tending her hydrangeas or hosting a brunch for her writing group. Patricia loves to travel and often finds the inspiration for her dark heroes, feisty heroines, and romantic settings while on a research trip. At the end of each journey, she loves going home to her cozy, historical old house outside of Boston where she weaves her magical tales.
