Patricia Coleman, aka P. R. Morris, is a critically acclaimed author of historical, amateur sleuth, and alternative history short stories and novels. She has received two Reviewers' Choice awards. One critic wrote "Ms. Coleman writes with elegance and pizzaz." (Romantic Times). Pat grew up as an "Army brat" and lived in many countries, including Germany and Thailand. The experience taught her a sense of humor will get you through most awkward siturations, like having your skirt ripped off by a baby elephant. Pat now lives in Colorado where she teaches at a local college and works with special needs teenagers. She volunteers as a docent at the local zoo.
