Welcome to the website of author Patricia Forsythe!
Spring has arrived in southern Arizona which is one of my three favorite seasons here. I’m sure you can guess which is my least favorite. Summer is long and hot, hot, hot but as a native Arizonan, I’ve become accustomed to it. I’m a big fan of air conditioning, however! The good thing about summer is that it keeps me indoors, working on my books and reading the books of other authors. Right now, I’m reading my way through Jacqueline Winspear’s wonderful Maisie Dobbs mysteries, which not only feature some type of ’who-dun-it’, but are also interesting character studies of Maisie herself, a survivor of World War I, and all the people with whom she comes into contact. I sigh with envy at the way Winspear develops her characters and hope I can do as well with lots more practice.
