Patricia Bradley lives in North Mississippi and is a former abstinence educator and co-author of RISE To Your Dreams, an abstinence curriculum. But her heart is tuned to suspense. Patricia’s romantic suspense books include the Logan Point series—Shadows of the Past and A Promise to Protect—and Matthew’s Choice, a Heartwarming romance. Her workshops on writing include an online course with American Christian Fiction Writers and workshops at the Midsouth Christian Writer’s Conference in Collierville, TN. When she’s not writing, she likes to throw mud on a wheel and see what happens.
“The theme of the series is that all Christians struggle with something. I actually had a reader email me that she struggled with the same thing Leigh struggles with—rejection by her mother—and that reading A Promise to Protect showed her how to deal with that rejection. She said reading the book changed her life, and even her family’s life. And that’s why I write. “
