Patricia Briggs


While Patricia Briggs has several series, she is best know for her Mercy Thompson books, and the spin-off Alpha and Omega series.  These are the two that will be focused on here.  Above are the links to take you to the reading lists and book summaries for both.

Patty steadfastly refuses to write a biography. She considers them narcissistic, and besides, she’d rather write something interesting!  But…

Patty is a prevarication professional. She lies for a living, telling whoppers and fibs so outrageous that people pay her to fib some more. Her only concession to honesty is that she tells people she’s lying to them. And that is what separates a fiction author from a politician.

Patty was born in Butte, Montana, back in 1965. If you’re good at math, you’ll have deduced that she’s currently twenty-nine. In fact, she’s been twenty-nine for a while and has no intention of getting any older. Fiction authors don’t obey the laws of space and time, they invent them. Don’t argue, or she’ll make up a dragon right behind you . . .

Patty writes writes traditional and urban fantasy, mostly novels. In her stories, there really ARE things that go bump in the night, magic is real, and sometimes the good guys actually win.

Her first book, Masques, was published back in 1993, and she’s produced roughly one book each year since then. She loves to play with her imaginary friends, and meeting with readers who know her imaginary friends is a treat. Her biggest complaint with writing is that she has far more ideas for stories than time to write them.

There is another Alpha and Omega book due out on March 3rd, and it is called Dead Heat.

Dead HeatFor once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles’s role as his father’s enforcer. This time, their trip to Arizona is purely personal, as Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday. Or at least it starts out that way…

Charles and Anna soon discover that a dangerous Fae being is on the loose, replacing human children with simulacrums. The Fae’s cold war with humanity is about to heat up—and Charles and Anna are in the cross fire.
