Pat was born in Cobham, Kent,UK, and spent her early years in West Africa and Ireland, until her family eventually settled in Leicestershire. When she was nine years old, she decided she wanted to be an archaeologist in the mistaken belief that they spent their time digging up dinosaur bones. When she discovered what they actually did, and got over the disappointment of a life without dinosaurs,she never looked back. Pat went on her first dig at the age of twelve, and spent school holidays happily up to her ears in mud on sites in England and Scotland. Pat has spent most of her adult life working for archaeology units, and most recently worked as an archaeological illustrator for a commercial unit in Northamptonshire.

Pat's first book for children, The Crowfield Curse, was shorlisted for The Times/ Chicken House Prize, and for the Waterstone's Children's Prize. It is longlisted for the Carnegie Medal and for the Branford Boase award. The second book in the Crowfield series, The Crowfield Demon,will be published in the UK 4th April 2011.
