About Patricia Simpson
Patricia Simpson is described by reviewers as “a premier writer of supernatural romance.” Author of over twenty novels, she is inspired by science, paranormal phenomena, and archeological discoveries, and consistently garners superior ratings and awards for unusual heroes and unpredictable plots. Simpson has been called “a master at keeping suspense going on a multitude of levels,” and a “masterful storyteller.”
Simpson has been published by TOR, Silhouette Shadows and HarperMonogram. Currently, she is enjoying creative freedom as an indie author.
From Egyptian lords that shape-shift into black panthers to Scottish time-travelers who step out of computers, Simpson entertains readers while pushing the envelope in paranormal suspense and dystopian fiction. Her trilogy, THE FORBIDDEN TAROT, goes further than anything she’s written before. This series explores a new world history and impending planetary disaster. Some reviewers have called the first book in this series, THE DARK LORD, a “true gift to her readers,” and a “lulu of a story.”
A recent writing challenge sent Simpson off in a new direction: dystopian fiction. What started out as a “what if?” novella morphed into THE LONDO CHRONICLES, a post-apocalyptic series that follows the lives of two sisters fighting to survive during a nuclear winter.
Though Simpson’s first love is paranormal fiction, she has never created a vampire hero in any of her books. But she couldn’t resist blurring the lines between genres in THE LONDO CHRONICLES—because it’s plausible that a creature of the night would thrive during a nuclear winter. And what better world to plop him down in than a dystopian Edwardian London? You can meet Gabriel Stone in THE APOTHECARY, the first book in the THE LONDO CHRONICLES.
Simpson’s favorite writing arenas are the Pacific Coast, the deep South, 18th century in America and Great Britain, ancient Egypt, Pacific Northwest Native Americans, and anything that makes her say “hmmmm.”
Simpson has won numerous awards, including Romantic Times Career Achievement Award, Best Futuristic, Paranormal, Fantasy of the Year and Reviewer’s Choice Awards. One of her recent novels, SPELLBOUND, was nominated Best Indie Paranormal of the Year.
