Patsy Trench


Patsy Trench lives quietly and for the most part respectably in north London. In a previous life she was an actress, scriptwriter, script editor, playscout, lyricist and founder of The Children's Musical Theatre of London, creating devised musicals with primary school-age children.

She has written and published three books (not including one written long ago, under a pseudonym). The Worst Country in the World is an informal yet informative account of the early days of colonial Australia, as seen through the eyes of her ancestors. Self Publishing for the Technically Challenged is a guidebook on DIY for non-techie authors. The Unlikely Adventures of Claudia Faraday is a slightly saucy novel set in the 1920s and featuring a very proper society lady discovering the joy of sex for the first time.

When not writing books she emerges from her shell to teach theatre and organise theatre trips for overseas students. She is the grateful mother of two clever and grown-up children, and she has a BA with the Open University and an MA in Theatre Text and Performance with RADA and Birkbeck College.

She has three websites at:, and
