Patricia Wynn


Patricia Wynn is the author of 10 romance novels from Harlequin, Fawcett, and Dorchester, which have earned her critical acclaim and a nomination for the RITA Award from Romance Writers of America, as well as made her a two-time finalist for an Award of Excellence from Colorado Romance Writers.

The first novel in her Blue Satan Mystery Series, The Birth of Blue Satan, won an Honorable Mention from Writers Digest, a Silver Medal from PMA, and was a finalist for a Herodotus Award for Best First Historical Mystery. The second title in this series, The Spider's Touch, won the Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Genre Novel in 2003 from the Independent Publishers Marketing Association. The third, The Motive from the Deed, received a starred review from Library Journal. There are now eight volumes in the series, spanning the years 1715 to 1727.

Wynn was born in Houston, Texas, and earned a history degree from Rice University in 1972. She later attended the American Graduate School of International Management (fondly known as Thunderbird) in Glendale, Arizona, for her Masters, and gave up a respectable career in international banking in Chicago to make an abortive attempt at entering veterinary school. Deciding to stay at home to raise her children instead, she has dedicated the remainder of her life to being a starving author with a passion for history. She sold the first book she ever wrote to Harlequin in 1987, but made up for this brilliant start later with several unsold manuscripts dispersed lightly amongst the aforementioned published titles.

When Pat's at home, she occupies an empty nest in Austin, Texas, with her husband and, sadly, no dogs.

Her proudest achievement is the suppport work she has given to Texans with Lyme disease.

Her future proudest achievement will be the restoration of 112 acres of native prairie.
