Patricia Bracewell grew up in Los Angeles where her love of stories led to college degrees in Literature, a career as a high school English teacher, and a yearning to write. A lifelong fascination with the history of Britain and a chance, on-line reference to an unfamiliar English queen led to years of research, a summer course in Anglo-Saxon history at Cambridge University, and the penning of her debut novel Shadow on the Crown. The book was hailed as a magnificent work of historical fiction by Englands Daily Mail and an enthralling debut by Publishers Weekly.

Patricia Bracewell recommends
The Service of the Dead (2016)
(Kate Clifford, book 1)
"The Service of the Dead is a tasty brew of political intrigue, larceny, and murder set within the walls of medieval York. Candace Robb s latest historical mystery is steeped in the atmosphere of the late fourteenth century, and in Kate Clifford she s given us a no-nonsense heroine and sleuth who is not only smart, but fierce when those she cares about are threatened. You re going to love her."
The Gardener of Eden (2019)
"David Downie evokes the fierce beauty of America's northwest coast, peoples it with an assortment of appropriately offbeat characters and plunges them into a mystery that is pitch-perfect for the time and place. A compelling read that is more than a little ominous."
