Hi, I’m Patricia Ann Bowen…

…and I write about complicated women (aren’t we all?) and the challenges they face. Short stories, novels, BLOGs, and more. I was born in New Jersey, now reside in Georgia and South Carolina, have four handsome sons, seven perfect grandkids all over the world, and two cats in the yard. I’m a travel junkie, beach bum, foodie, tree-hugger, noir fan, penny-pincher, and more… all stuff to write about, so grab one of my books and start reading.

My writing career began straight out of college as the only English major in my class to graduate with a writing job: in-house copywriter creating advertising and catalog copy, speeches, training and marketing materials, and more. Over a long career in sales, market development, management, consulting, and international business, you name it, I wrote it. All non-fiction.

With degrees in English and Psychology, and certifications in personal coaching and grief counseling, I’ve taken my knowledge of the mind and the world and begun applying it to writing fiction. I’m a million-miler flyer with experience in many countries and cultures and I’m now writing fiction in all its diverse forms. I’ve taught writing in Kennesaw State University’s OLLI program and lead a short story writing group for the Atlanta Writers Club.

I’m a former Jersey girl who now divides my time between the burbs in Georgia and the beach in South Carolina. I have four sons in the States (that’s me between them >>>), and grandkids all over the world. I’m a travel junkie, beach bum, foodie, tree hugger, noir fan, penny pincher, and more… lots of stuff to write about, so grab one of my books and start enjoying my stories.




I have many muses that inspire, haunt, and urge me on as I write and rewrite. Among them are Flannery O’Connor, Elena Ferrante, Pascal Garnier, Patricia Highsmith, Alfred Hitchcock, and Nora Ephron. I invite you to join us on our odyssey of words.
