Patrice Fitzgerald is in her third, fourth, or fifteenth act at this point. Writing and singing have always been part of her life, but she made a fifteen-year detour into practicing law. She got over it.
Her writing includes a dystopian series based on Hugh Howey's world of WOOL, tightly plotted and fast-paced novels like her political thriller "RUNNING," plus quirky short stories about sex, God, and death--not necessarily in that order--such as "Till Death Do Us Part" and "Looking for Lance." Her stories have appeared in a number of anthologies.
Patrice is currently at work writing the third book in the Karma series of stories set in the Silo. The first, "The Sky Used to be Blue," is on target to sell 2,000 copies in the first month, with the second, "Cleaning Up," due out before May 1. She is a professional mezzo-soprano who sings in styles ranging from opera and Broadway to jazz. Patrice is the mother of four fairly adult children, two by birth and two by marriage. She lives in Connecticut on the water with her wonderful singing, programming, writing and trumpet-playing husband. She is thrilled that RUNNING, her first published novel, has become a Kindle bestseller and has been read and enjoyed by people from all over the world.
