Amor Libris: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Patricia Harris: Well, I am all over the place. I am a crafty soul and a highly creative person. I am an insomniac. I am currently riding in a big rig with my thirteen-year-old daughter and her father, my best friend of twenty-one years. I have been writing poetry since I was nine years old, but I have lost track of many of my poems. I am often sarcastic and have a somewhat morbid sense of humor.
Amor Libris: What is your favorite motivational phrase, and why?
Patricia Harris: Not sure what counts as motivational. My favorite quote is “Smile, it makes them wonder what you are up to.”
Amor Libris: What do you like to do when you are not writing?
Patricia Harris: I make jewelry, crochet, draw, do amateur photography, and do abstract art. I also play video games and run D20 games. I goof off on the Internet, and I love to read.
Amor Libris: What books and/or authors have influenced you the most?
Patricia Harris: Uhm, another place that I am all over the place. I am a voracious reader and I refuse to limit myself. I have a few favorite poets (Sara Teasdale, Maya Angelou, Emily Dickinson, and Edgar Allen Poe), but I enjoy all poems (mostly, lol). I do enjoy several genres, and I enjoy many authors. Some of the authors I read the most are Tamora Pierce, Nora Roberts, Stephen King, Anne Rice, RA Salvatore, Laurel K. Hamilton, and Timothy Zahn.
