Patricia Catacalos holds a B.A. in Theatre from Seton Hill University and a M.A. in Theatre from the University of Denver. Years ago, while still single, she acted in and directed plays in the Philadelphia area, but suffered the fate of many artists, struggling financially. So, she entered a career in sales, but her creative spirit needed to express itself. So, approximately twelve years ago, she started writing historical romances. Many of her historical romances have a subgenre of mystery and/or the paranormal. She discovered that writing historical romances and ultimately, historical mystery/intrigue is her passion. Currently, she had written twenty-five novels and novellas. She has been happily married for thirty-two years to a loving and supportive man with a Greek heritage (which influenced a couple of her novels) and they live in southern New Jersey.
