I am a wife, mother of two and grandma to one. I live in Manchester, UK.
Currently, I have four books available to download on Amazon.
I took the inspiration for my first novel from all the people, places and experiences which have graced my life over the past forty (something) years. In 2004 we were lucky enough to buy our own piece of France and have spent the years since renovating a ramshackle farmhouse in the Loire. During this time I have met some wonderful people and made lovely French and English friends, some of whom find themselves with a starring role in my stories.
As with all families, mine has had it’s fair share of incidents, traumas and achievements, including the odd nutty relative ( everybody has one) so I drew on life’s rich tapestry and some of these special moments I have shared with you.
However, none of this would have been at all possible without the unstinting support of my lovely family and friends.
When I first pitched my idea of writing a novel to my husband, Brian, I was given the thumbs up and I am buoyed by his total belief in me. He is followed closely by my mum whose faith has never ever wavered and believes I am capable of anything. Literally! Never forgetting our two children who encouraged and cajoled me from the start.
And to our grandson, Harry, who stands by my side and is always so impressed by my word count. I promise that one day I will write a special story, just for you.
And finally I must thank my son Owen who is responsible for all matters technical and without whose patience and enthusiasm I would never have been able to press the publish button.

Over My Shoulder
by Patricia Dixon
Genre: Contemporary Women/Women’s Fiction/Religious & Inspirational Fiction
This is a dark and gripping romance which tells of a nice young girl who met a very bad man. Sounds simple? Not really. By the time the girl realised the depths of his wicked soul and a wiser, braver young woman was about to emerge, it was too late. His twisted roots had wrapped around her life, spreading rapidly, taking a firm hold of her confused head and fragile heart. There was to be no escape from the tangled mess unless it was on his terms and even then, once she was free and her life rolled precariously on, the seeds he had sown remained embedded deep within. When she least expected it he would return and make good his promise, exact revenge and ensure she paid any price he felt owed.
Set in Manchester in the early nineties, Over My Shoulder is an intricate tale of blinkered love and obsession. This gripping psycho-sexual thriller with criminal undertones tracks the life of a young woman, from her carefree mid-twenties right up to present day.
Freya falls under the spell of controlling and manipulative Kane and soon, her life changes beyond her wildest imagination. When the luxurious life she craves gradually becomes intolerable, escape is out of reach.
This is a disturbing story of an affluent life, cleverly camouflaging the sinister underworld which funds it. And just when you think it is all over, there is a twist.
When will it end, can it end?
