You Can't appreciate the light without the dark


Patricia A. Gray began her writing career as a teen, writing short stories and learning the craft through various classes in English, journalism, and creative writing. After earning her BA in Communications from the University of Alabama, Patricia worked multiple jobs in various industries: as a radio DJ to karate instructor to parking manager. It is from this diverse experience that Patricia cultivated a true appreciation of the stranger side of life and the realization that some of the best characters come from the most mundane occupations.

During the multitude of careers which never took, Patricia revamped her interest in writing and eventually wrote her first full-length novel entitled Choices, a story that utilized her interest and studies in Native American cultures: the main character, a Navajo male. A few years later, she wrote Rebels, a Southern saga, bringing in many of her experiences from living in the Heart of Dixie.

After taking a few years off to start a family, Patricia returned to writing and penned The Loner, her first published work and the beginning of the psychological ride which would become her trademark. Her dark, often twisted journey into her characters’ minds brings the reader right along for every curve in the road. The often misunderstood, totally imperfect main character is always a reminder that some protagonists can not be judged by their cover and some should definitely be opened with care.
