Patricia has an impressive track record on the writing front– nearly 20 years as a journalist, regularly contributing to publications including The Guardian, The Financial Times, The New York Times, and The Telegraph. Formerly a design columnist at The Independent and the Lisbon correspondent for Monocle magazine, she covers subjects ranging from design, art, and culture to travel, politics, and human-interest pieces from around the world.

In 2021, Patricia won the $100,000 Nine Dots Prize and a book deal with Cambridge University Press.

Outback is Patricia’s first work of fiction and was shortlisted for the 2023 CWA John Creasey New Blood Dagger.

Her second DS Walker novel, Paradise, came out in May, and a third one is in the offing.

Patricia grew up in Queensland, Australia. She likes whisky and strong coffee, busy cities, surf beaches, and wild places which doesn’t quite square with now living in Berlin.
