Pat Frayne is a recently retired registered nurse with twelve grandchildren. She writes mystical adventurous mysteries about a endowed with magical abilities. These stories are for parents and grandparents as well as for young adults. They are a bit scary, lots of fun, and there's an emphasis on the value of friendship and loyalty. . Caitlin, Pat's nine year old granddaughter, was her inspiration for the second book, Part #2 Topaz and the Plum-Gista Stone. Pat writes: "As I was trying to get past a stumbling block in the first chapter, I received a letter from Caitlin. It was a single paragraph she had typed on the computer. Knowing I was going to write another story for her, she wondered if I would include her idea.The paragraph Caitlin sent me described a specific dilemma for the characters in the story. The dilemma turned out to be the very solution I needed to get past my stumbling block in the story. It also introduced a new character, a Fawn named Daisy." Pat lives in a small town in Arizona with her husband, Ron and their dog, Charlie, a black lab mix.
