Patricia Caliskan

Following a childhood spent writing ‘pretend’ books, most notably, Our Book about Jesus – a self-help guide for young Catholics and, The Sleepover – a compelling tale of a midnight feast, shockingly intercepted by fictitious parents with badly-drawn hands, Patricia always liked playing with words.

Her stories explore family dynamics, office politics, and the divergent roles of women throughout their lives…

Patricia likes the colour grey; TV boxsets; movie stars; a nice, flouncy scarf; a good pair of boots, and laughter. Lots of laughter. Because without it life feels far too grown up for her liking.

AWFUL BY COMPARISON her debut novel was followed by, GIRLFRIEND, INTERRUPTED a rom-com on the theme of blended families. She has just completed a new novel, WHEN WE WERE US.
