Book Spotlight: Patricia Bates

Today I have author Patricia Bates here to tell us a bit about herself and introduce us to her published works. She has written a total of eight books, and keeps on publishing more!

          Reading has been such a large part of my life. I cut my literary teeth on such authors as Louis L’Amour, Nora Roberts, and Janet Dailey. For me, it wasn’t such a jump from reading the wonderful tales these authors spun to imagining my own.
Soon I was writing poetry and short stories, and by junior high I’d written my first full length romance novel. Since then I’ve taken my love of history and my passion for writing and combined them into what I hope will continue to prove a successful career.
I have six books contracted, four of which are currently available in print. All are available in electronic format with the last two e-books due for release in May and the summer, separately. I’m currently working on three projects, an erotic paranormal romance featuring a witch who loves Christmas, another Ancient Ireland novel, rich in the history of the Irish Celtic peoples, and a Cowboy Series tentatively titled “The James Gang”.
Of course I’ve got a lot more on the go. I’m developing and growing my editing company with some amazing authors, working on getting the books that Blade had revamped to fit the submission guidelines for some other publishers, keeping up on my writing, and being a full time mom while working outside of the house…it’s amazing what I can manage in a 16-hour day.
