I’m Patricia – but everyone calls me Trish. I grew up in a small town in Oregon. I now live in a slightly larger town in Oregon with my husband and three cats. When I’m not writing, I spend my time hiking mountain trails, scribbling story ideas on sticky notes, and longing for a dog.
My debut novel, The Tragically True Adventures of Kit Donovan, was published by Albert Whitman & Company in Spring 2017. I’m represented by Kerry Sparks at Levine | Greenberg | Rostan Literary Agency.
You can follow me on Goodreads, and you can talk to me here, on Twitter, or on Facebook. (Seriously. Talk to me. I could use a writing break.) I also blog at From The Mixed-Up Files of Middle Grade Authors, so be sure to check me out over there.
Curious about what kind of kid I was?
Take a peek.
Wonder what I’m up to when I’m not writing?
Here’s a glimpse of my world now.
