About this author

Award-winning screenwriter and bestselling novelist Patricia Burroughs—Pooks—began her writing career in romance with five published novels. She received nominations and recognition from RT Reviews and was a Finalist for Romance Writers of America's RITA.

For a time, Pooks was lured away from her novels to pursue a career in screenwriting, where her story-telling gift again won her recognition in the form of a Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

However, one day she woke up with a new story rooting itself into her heart, a story that couldn't be told in a script but needed many more pages to spread out, flex its muscles and take wing. She returned to novels to write the epic fantasy trilo...more


I participated in the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen last week and it was one of the most fabulous experiences ever. What does this mean?


Well, it means we saved Scrappy.

Patricia's Recent Updates

Patricia Burroughs is 75% done with My Sweet Folly: Nicholas Boulton is a superb reader/narrator/actor. Laura Kinsale did her typical excellent job when she found him and chose him to read all her books. I would love to have him do my own fantasy series. This book starts very much like a Daphne du Maurier thriller, and makes you wonder how on earth this can be a romance that works itself out in the end. I vaguely remember reading it long ago, but don't remember much.
