Patricia Marie Budd was born and raised in Saskatchewan, Canada. She lived in Japan where Patricia taught English as a Foreign Language for two years. In her early twenties she studied mime in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and then later in life renewed her interest in physical theatre by studying with Phillip Gaulier in London, England in 96/97. Her current residence is in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada where she has been teaching High School English since 1991.
For Patricia writing is a passion. She has been writing since early childhood when, in grade five, she wrote a short play and performed it for her peers. The controversial quality of her writing was evident even then as her teacher shut the show down. Much of Patricia’s writing has been theatrical in nature, having a one act play produced in The Rhubarb Festival’s Special Event in 1984. She has also participated in a number of play writing labs under the tutelage of Sharon Pollock. In 1998 she was a part of the Alberta Playwriting Committee.
Patricia has spent the last three years researching slave law and life in Georgia in the early 1800s. Although A New Dawn Rising is Patricia’s first novel it is sure to please.
