Author Biography
Robins, Patricia (Author)
Patricia Robins was born on February 1, 1921. After being educated in Switzerland and Germany, she became a journalist. Her first job was as a junior editor with Women's Illustrated magazine. During World War II, she joined the Women's Auxiliary Air Force. Because of her language skills, she was given the job of tracking incoming enemy aircraft using the new British radar system in the filter room. She used bad weather breaks to write stories for women's magazines to earn money for gasoline so that she and her girlfriends could attend NAAFI dances.

She became a romance novelist who wrote 160 novels during her lifetime including Mavreen, Tamarisk, Ortolans, Deception, The Faithful Heart, and You Never Know. She also wrote under the pen names Claire Lorrimer and Susan Patrick. She received an Outstanding Achievement Award by the Romantic Novelists' Association. She died from complications following a fall earlier in the year on December 4, 2016 at the age of 95.
