Patricia Straight

Biography

I live in Ridley Park, Pennsylvania which is about ten miles south of Philadelphia. I've lived in this area all my life and I feel fortunate living in an area that is so rich in history. Almost every main road has a sign commemorating the town settler or a historical landmark. It is one of the few areas where sitting in traffic can be educational.
I'm divorced with three grown children and four grandchildren. For the past eighteen years, I've worked as an office manager for a small business. Evenings and weekends are set aside for what I love best, writing. My favorite author is Mary Higgins Clark because I love a good mystery. Most of my summer vacations were spent at the Delaware beaches, with a book in hand, soaking up the sun. No vacation is complete without a good murder mystery.
My interests are varied. They include normal things like cooking and gardening which I love because I like to eat and I enjoy the beauty of nature. Then there are the not so normal activities like energy work and past life regression. After taking part in a past life regression, I'm convinced that we have all been here before. Energy work has also made me a believer with various techniques for healing the body with our own positive energy. It also gives a clearer understanding of the detrimental effects of negative energy.
My varied interests are reflected in my writing as I strive to create a good mystery that will keep you guessing to the very end.
