Pat Esden would love to say she spent her childhood in intellectual pursuits. The truth is she was fonder of exploring abandoned houses and old cemeteries. When not out on her own adventures, she can be found in her northern Vermont home writing stories about brave, smart women and the men who capture their hearts.

She is the author of the contemporary paranormal Dark Heart series from Kensington Books, and the upcoming Northern Circle Coven series. Her short fiction has appeared in a number of publications, including Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, the Mythopoeic Society’s Mythic Circle, George Scither’s Cat Tales Anthology, and the Fragments of Darkness anthology.

Thank you for the 5-star review. I’m so thrilled that you loved A HOLD ON ME. And I’m delight that you asked this question.

I’ve always loved gothic novels, TV shows, and movies. I knew it was a genre I wanted to write in. But it took me awhile to figure out how to get a contemporary college-age woman isolated in a mansion with her estranged relatives. I was a daddy’s girl myself and would never have deserted my father if he needed my help. I also lived in a household with a mentally ill person when I was a little younger than Annie and therefore am familiar with the range of emotions that can come from that sort of situation. I combined these two things with my love for myths, and all things supernatural and paranormal, and the idea for A HOLD ON ME came to life.

But, despite how much Annie loves her dad, when A HOLD ON ME began she was also on the cusp of starting her own life separate from her father. So the focus in next books in the series shows her shifting from a daddy’s girl to a woman who is building and fighting for her new friends and relationships.
