Background Information

Patricia Guthrie lives in the south suburbs of Chicago where she writes novels of mystery, suspense and romance..  She has completed four novels.  "In the Arms of the Enemy" was released in 2007 and "Waterlilies Over My Grave" came out in November of 2008.

Pat has numerous short stories of various genres published in the Skyline Literary Magazine and has several nonfiction articles published in the Cassette, a national magazine for collie fanciers.

Backed by a Masters Degree in Music, Pat’s former life consisted of singing in opera houses in the US and Europe. Not satisfied with the insecure life of an opera singer, Pat decided to go into teaching music in Chicago. She taught at a school for emotionally disturbed children before transferring to the public school system, where she taught music in the inner city. Recently, retired from teaching into writing full time, Pat transferred her skills from the performance arena to the computer where she now creates her own stories.

She has a lifetime love of horses and dogs who (for some reason) keep popping up either as the subject of novels or as minor characters, no matter what the topic. Collies are a central figure in Pat’s life. She’s trained and shown them in obedience and rally obedience trials in the Midwest and Canada. Her dogs have also earned their Herding Instinct Certificates, trained in agility and participated in backpacking and dog-walks. As therapy dogs they've provided love and support for the physically disabled, emotionally disturbed and adults with schizophrenia.

Horses became a central part of her world mega years ago She’s gone through one birth-one death, breaking, training, riding and showing; getting dumped, stepped on, bitten and frequently becoming “horse poor.”Thinking back to all the war stories, good and bad, she’s loved every minute of it.

Her novel "In the Arms of the Enemy," involves three areas Pat loves the most:: mystery, romance and horses. This story is about getting justice for animals who can't protect themselves.

Pat is a member of Romance Writers of America, Chapter 89 RWA Northwest Indiana, and Sisters in Crime, and she has participated in numerous workshops with authors like Debra Dixon, Alicia Rasley, Deborah Hale, Margie Lawson, Joanna Wayne and Sue Viders. She also gives workshops to small groups, hoping to pass along what she learns to others
