Patricia Flaherty Pagan grew up in Red Sox Nation but has lived in four countries. She thought getting her MFA in creative writing was hard, until she tried adopting two Indonesian street cats. She writes award-winning mystery and literary short stories and novellas. Trail Ways Pilgrims: Stories, her collection featuring literary and mystery tales, was published in March 2015. Her mystery fiction has appeared in Eve’s Requiem: Tales of Women, Mystery and Horror and Spry, among others. Her literary short stories and flash fiction have been published in various journals and included in anthologies such as Our Space and Tides of Impossibility. She edited Up, Do: Flash Fiction by Women Writers. She still likes Blondie and The Pretenders.
