Thank you for stopping by my website.

I am a storyteller. It’s a simple concept with lots of twists and turns.

I’ve been calling myself an author since 1998. Since that time, I’ve written in a variety of genres and on a multitude of topics. It’s been a delightful journey. As the world of writing and publishing continues to change and evolve at ever increasing speeds, I find myself confused, intrigued, and confused more every day. The more I learn, the less I know.

I write contemporary fiction and romances. I love creating characters and writing descriptive settings. In addition, I have written several books of creative nonfiction.

Please wander around my website to learn more about my writing. I hope you’ll continue to come back and read my blog, featuring announcements and news from my fellow authors. Use the contact form to send me an email. I’d love to hear from you.


During the down time of COVID-19, I’ve been busy working with some excellent narrators to produce my romances as audio books. More to come very soon! Check them out.

  3. Hello P. C. Zick, it is nice to ‘meet’ you. I love your zest for outdoor life. You left a comment on my contemporary romance novel – Kiss My Lips (Holiday Series #2) – post featured on Staci Triolo’s blog late last year. Thank you.

    I live in London and I write contemporary romance. But I have my first historical romance – Royal Cowries – due out on Mar 31st 2015. it would be great to stay in touch.
    Best wishes,

    1. Wanda – Thank you so much for leaving the comment. It keeps me going. I’m finishing up a novella for a sports-themed romantic box set right now. I hope to write Behind the Curtain this summer. It would be wonderful if you could leave a short review on the site where you purchased the books. Reviews are very helpful to us Indie Authors. Thanks again. You’ve started my week on a high note:)

    1. Debbie, how wonderful to meet you, too. I certainly hope you enjoy my books. I’ve ordered them all and should have them at Body Buzz either next Friday or Monday, July 27. Sometimes they are slow to get them sent! I shouldn’t have packed all of them away in storage!
      See you at Body Buzz soon. Pat


  6. Hi, I ordered Native Lands from one of those free book sites, and not realizing they were stand alone books, bought the first two to read them in order. I found them particularly interesting, since I have two sons who live in Florida, and one is a wildlife biologist. Imagine my surprise as I finished up Native Lands while on the plane after visiting them in Florida and read your acknowledgements. You listed your address as Raccoon Twp. and I was on my way home to Aliquippa!


    1. Hi Susan, thanks for contacting me. I hope it was a free deal on Amazon (otherwise it’s a pirated copy!) but nonetheless I’m pleased you enjoyed reading the books. I lived in Raccoon Twp (Aliquippa) for five years. We moved away in 2016 but still come back to visit family and friends. Good to hear from you!
