Hello! My name is Stephanie Patterson. I am a published novelist and generally have ten, or twelve plot ideas simultaneously running through my head. I was first published by Genesis Press in 2000 and have since published another four novels including my historical romance series, Season of the Furies. I'm set to embark on my next series and I can't wait!
I live in St. Helens, Oregon - aka Halloweentown - where we hold a month-long Halloween festival every year. People come from all over the world to visit us. I have worked as a legal assistant federal criminal defense attorney for 17 years. Criminal and the criminal justice system are fascinating to me. I've worked high profile cases, death penalty and murder for hire cases.
I love Pacific Northwest with its beaches, mountains and high desert climates all within driving distance.
I teach cartomancy – a fancy way of saying tarot reading. I've been a belly dance hobby enthusiast for ten years, performing at various festivals around the Pacific Northwest.
