Patricia Grady Cox writes novels set in the 19th century Arizona Territory. Living in Arizona, she enjoys being able to conduct research in the actual locations of her stories. She feels that volunteering for several years at a living history museum in Arizona, where she portrayed an 1800s ranch woman, deepened her knowledge and appreciation of life in the Old West.
Her first novel, "CHASM CREEK," was chosen as a finalist in historical fiction by the New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards and is released as a large print, library bound edition by Thorndike Press. Her second novel, "HELLGATE," was released by Five Star Publishing in April 2018 to excellent reviews.
"I believe my love for the desert southwest, and my interest in Arizona history, bring authenticity to my fiction set in the 1880s," Patricia says. "My hope is that readers will be transported to another time and place, and they will be as emotionally involved with my characters as I am."
Patricia is a member of Western Writers of America, Women Writing the West and the Society of Southwestern Authors.
