Author's Bio

Patricia Wilson was born in Liverpool, has lived on Crete and is now settled on Rhodes. She was first inspired to write when she unearthed a rusted machine gun in her garden - one used in the events that unfolded during World War II on the island of Crete. The now elderly women involved in those events told Patricia their story, and her celebrated debut Island of Secrets (150k copies sold) was the result. Villa of Secrets (60k copies sold) was inspired by documents found in a secret room in a police station in Rhodes detailing the fate of the Jews on the island in 1944. Secrets of Santorini is inspired by frescoes found on Santorini.
