Patricia Falvey is an Irish-born author living in Dallas, Texas. Her first novel was the acclaimed The Yellow House, first published in 2010. It was followed by The Linen Queen in 2011. Both novels are set in Northern Ireland. Her upcoming novel, The Girls of Ennismore, is set in the west of Ireland between 1900 and 1917. It is scheduled for publication in the U.S. in March, 2017, and is currently available for pre-order. The U.K. version of the e-book will be available at the end of September, 2016.
Patricia became a published author after a long career in the financial services industry. She views this phase of her life as her “Second Act” and strongly encourages anyone with a dream to pursue it no matter what their age. It’s never too late!
When she is not traveling around the scenic backroads of her beloved Ireland doing research and spending time with friends and family, she enjoys hanging out with good friends in Texas and enjoying the “craic” (as the Irish say). She loves lively discussions, laughter and a good joke. She also enjoys teaching and mentoring fledgling writers, PBS Sunday night television programs, and live theater.
