Patricia Thayer was born and raised in Muncie, Indiana, the second in a family of eight children. She attended Ball State University, before heading west, where she has called Southern California, home for many years. There she’s been a member of the Orange County Chapter of RWA. It’s a sisterhood like no other.

Patricia has written over fifty books. She’s also had the honor of being nominated for both the National Reader’s Choice Award and the prestigious RITA award, and seeing her book ‘Nothing Short of a Miracle’ win a Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice award.

When not working on a story, she might be found traveling the United States and Europe, taking in the scenery and doing story research while thoroughly enjoying time with my husband, Steve. Together, we have three grown sons and four grandsons and one granddaughter. She calls them my own true life heroes. On rare days off from writing, you might catch her at Disneyland spoiling those grandkids rotten!

When she wants some quiet time with her guy, they escape to their little cabin in the mountains and park themselves out on the deck and let the world race by.
