About the author

Patricia Loofbourrow was born in southern California in 1962. She began writing poetry in her teen years, and wrote her first novel during the 2005 National Novel Writing Month, going on to write well over 100 stories, mostly speculative fiction. She became a USA Today and NY Times best-selling author in February 2017 with her debut novel The Jacq of Spades as part of the Dark Humanity science fiction and fantasy box set.

Patricia Loofbourrow grew up on Heinlein, Bradbury, and Asimov, and found at an early age that she loved science. Earning a Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology with a minor in Chemistry from Cal Poly Pomona then an MD from Rush University, Dr. Loofbourrow practiced family medicine for ten years before changing careers in 2000 due to disability.

After leaving medicine, Patricia Loofbourrow ran one of the first “ask a doctor” patient education websites from 2000-2004. She has been a long-time member of the Forward Motion Forums, and has worked as a freelance writer, editor, and graphic designer since 2000. She currently lives in Oklahoma with her husband and three grown children.
