Patrice Lyle believes in writing what you love. Since the age of ten, she’s been doing just that. Her father’s policeman tales sparked her love of mysteries. Stories of her great grandmother’s ESP sparked her love of the paranormal. And a trip to a drug store in England, where she bought a homeopathic remedy for a sore throat, sparked her love of natural health. She has a BA in Business, an MA in Writing Popular Fiction, and PhD in Holistic Nutrition; and she’s a Certified Traditional Naturopath. Now she lives with her husband and three cats near Memphis, where she’s working on her next novel and trolling the area for ghostly happenings.
