About Pat Noad

Pat Noad is an Australian author who divides her time between big city life in Brisbane and getting sand between her toes on the nearby Sunshine Coast, where a lot of her writing happens.

Pat’s work as a consultant has taken her to all sorts of nooks and crannies of her vast and varied home state of Queensland. She finds herself intrigued by the old stories passing down the generations in this young country, a country which has matured into a sophisticated society so quickly since the First Fleet unloaded its convict passengers just over two hundred years ago – a country which generally looks to the future rather than back over its shoulder.

Her stories often find the blazing Australian sun casting dark shadows from the past across the present, and long-dead skeletons rattling in family cupboards.

Pat’s mystery writing sits at the lighter end of the crime fiction spectrum. She also enjoys writing about the ever-changing Australian society in which she lives, and reflecting on the changing nature of our world. She's written a series of five Annie Bryce mysteries along with two anthologies of short stories and essays. Her latest novel 'On the Edge' is her first venture away from crime fiction in novel form.
