Patricia Burroughs--Pooks--began her writing career in romance with five published novels. She received nominations and recognition from RT Reviews and was a Finalist for Romance Writers of America's Rita.Then she got lured over to the dark side--screenwriting. Her first script landed her an agent, director, stars--everything needed for the movie to get made but money. Later scripts [action comedies, romantic comedies, science fiction and fantasies] continued the string of "almosts" until the years 2000 and 2001, when she became the only screenwriter in history to be a Finalist twice--with two different scripts--for the Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting. She received the Fellowship from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences for an adaptation of her first published novel, La Desperada, under the title, "Redemption." Uncredited but paying work followed, and she was happy with her Hollywood dreams...Until one day she woke up with a new story rooting itself into her heart, a story that couldn't be told in a script but needed many more pages to spread out, flex its muscles and take wing. She returned to novels and is presently writing an epic fantasy trilogy. This Crumbling Pageant is out from Story Spring Publishing in hardcover, trade paperback and digital on May 6!Pooks loves dogs, books, movies, and football. A lifelong Anglophile, she treasures her frequent travels in the British Isles researching current science fiction/fantasy writing projects. She and her high school sweetheart husband are living happily ever after in their hometown of Dallas, Texas.

As someone who spent much of my life with an undiagnosed learning disability a...

Mesmerizing, scintillating, and magical. This is an amazing story which captured my attention from the start. It pulls one into a world like none other I have read... history entwined with fantasy, mythical gods and goddesses, ancient prophesy, a chosen one, and the power of a young female who needs...

I have wanted to read this ever since I saw the blurb and cover on Patricia Burroughs blog. So when she contacted me, wondering if I would be interested in an ARC, I said yes.And, I had a blast reading it. Cecilia's and Jeff's romance was a case of opposites attract. Jeff's life were ordered, Cecili...
