Patricia Iles

Biography

I've been in love with words for as long as I can remember. I love how they can paint a picture in your mind, or make you hear the sound they portray (sniff, meow, whisper). I love the layers of nuance and emotion that can be captured by words. I love them all.

I live, work and write in Trout Creek, Montana.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I can't say I remember the first story I ever wrote; I've been writing since I was a child. Poetry, short stories, essays, the only time I wasn't writing is when I was reading.
What is your writing process?
I am a complete pantser. For me, writing is a lot like playing Barbies when I was a child. I have my characters, I put them in a situation and I imagine what those people would do and say.
