About the Author

JOANNA FITZPATRICK was raised in Hollywood. She started her writing habit by applying her orange fountain pen and a wild imagination to screenplays, which led her early on to produce the film White Lilacs and Pink Champagne. Accepted at Sarah Lawrence College, she wrote her MFA thesis Sha La La: Live for Today about her life as a rock 'n' roll star's wife. Her more recent work includes two novels, Katherine Mansfield, Bronze Winner of the 2021 Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) in Historical Fiction, and The Drummer's Widow. The Artist Colony is her third book. FitzPatrick divides up the seasons between her Monterey Bay home in Pacific Grove, California, and a hameau in southern France where she begins all her new book projects.


"Bold, creative, and unexpected--all the things nice ladies weren't supposed to be when they escaped to Carmel-by-the-Sea to make art without criticism. FitzPatrick, a descendant of one of those feisty female pioneers, has honored her family legacy and entertained her fans with a fast-paced whodunit that is equal parts loving tribute and killer thriller."
--Meredith May, author of The Honey Bus and Loving Edie

Praise for FitzPatrick's Katherine Mansfield:

"FitzPatrick deftly captures Mansfield's fervent dedication to her craft and her unwavering hope that she will overcome her illness. A well-informed, intuitive account of a singular modernist writer whose life is cut short."
--Kirkus Reviews
