What's the difference between a lawyer and a journalist? In Patricia Carswell’s case, just a few years. She started her career as a commercial barrister, but after 10 years she’d had her fill of stiff collars, pink ribbon and black suits and moved to deepest Wales to write for a living.


Married to author and screenwriter M.R. Hall, Patricia has two teenage sons and an unruly terrier. After a lifetime of sloth, she has finally embraced sport with unreserved enthusiasm, and can often be found messing about on the river or punishing herself in the gym.



Patricia's blog was shortlisted in
