Pat Dunlap Evans was born in Michigan but “got to Texas as soon as I could.” Her family lived in San Antonio and Dallas, where she attended South Oak Cliff High School and Southern Methodist University, eventually completing her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English at University of Missouri, Kansas City. After college, Pat stressed her way through twenty-five years of various advertising and marketing roles before retiring at last to write novels. She lives in the Lake Travis area with her second husband Bill Evans and enjoys travel, golf, volunteer work, sailing, and the chaos of the couple’s combined five adult children, five grandchildren, one great-grandson, and two Cockalier dogs.

Writers must allow the brain and fingers to work their magic together. Sometimes I don't have a clue what I'm going to write about, but if I just sit down and get the fingers flowing on the keys, stuff pours out. Perhaps too much stuff so I'll have to edit heavily later, but some of my best fiction has come from no forethought. "Writers write, that's what they do," my professor used to tell me. So if you're stuck, just start writing about anything. Between the lines, you may discover a gem.(less)

Run off a dock like a little boy and scream "Bonsaiiiieee!" Or, come to terms with a dying parent over a long-ago misunderstanding. Or enjoy the warm banter of a childhood friend who is now old. These are things I've never experienced in my life, but I have lived them through my characters. Not that my life is boring, but writers always want more.(less)
