Pat Garwood was born in Devon in 1941. She is best known as a television, film and stage actress, first appearing in 'The Lavender Hill Mob' at the age of nine.
She met her husband, the award-winning playwright Jeremy Paul while she was playing Wendy in Peter Pan at the Scala Theatre in London. It was love at first sight and they were married for 50 wonderfully happy years, until his death in 2011. She has four daughters and ten grandchildren, and now lives by the sea in Dorset.
In her forties she began to get the urge to write and started to map out the ideas and plots for two books: the intriguing historical 'Keyne Island', (which was prompted by a vivid dream) and the soon to be published 'Walnuts', a contemporary tale following the lives and loves of the families and folk who live in Princeton Road. However, with her successful acting career and bringing up four children, it wasn't until 2014 that she came back to them. The process of re-working both novels has re-kindled her passion for writing, kept on hold for so many years. She is currently planning her third novel, set in the near future.
