Patricia Burroughs—Pooks—loves Pratchett, Aaronovitch, Dunnett, and Heyer. Pooks began her writing career in romance with five published novels and was a Finalist for Romance Writers of America’s RITA. Then she got lured over to the dark side—screenwriting—where she received a prestigious Nicholl Fellowship from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Uncredited but paying work followed.
Pooks has returned to novels with the dark epic fantasy with The Fury Triad, a dark YA fantasy series. This Crumbling Pageant was awarded the Golden Quill for Best Fantasy Romance in 2015. The Dead Shall Live will be released later this year, 2017. She is also writing a book about putting passion and emotion into your writing that will be published by BVC.
