Flo Fitzpatrick was born in Washington D.C. and wants to announce to anyone interested that “it’s a District not a state, and consequently doesn’t issue state birth certificates.” ( She’s run into problems when moving from one state to another trying to prove her identity at the local Dept. of Motor Vehicles. It does not make her happy!) An Army brat, Flo became a world traveler while still in diapers, living in Virginia, Georgia and a castle (chateau) in France, all before she hit age five.
She earned a B.F. A. in Dance and an M.A. in Theatre, then spent her years after college shuttling from New York to Texas working as a dancer/singer/actress, teaching dance and acting, and choreographing for various theatres and community colleges.
Flo returned to writing when a major foot injury kept her home and hobbling. Her second book with Kensington, Hot Stuff, was the recipient of a Four and Half Star Gold review from RT Book Reviews and nominated for Best Romantic Suspense of 2005. It’s currently under option for film. She calls her writing, “Ungenreable” since she loves mixing romance, mystery, some occasional paranormal – and almost always humor.
When she’s not writing, she’s teaching Dance and Theatre and dealing with a 60 pound rescue dog who likes licking rugs, chewing on socks (while feet are in them), taking walks at 5 am (ouch) and – dear heaven – singing.

Scouting for a “must be chilly/must be spooky” medieval castle in Prague to use as the background for a musical film based on a Gothic novel is, to quote Gershwin, “nice work if you can get it.”
1997. Autumn in Texarkana and the Harvest Moon is shinin’ on. Boston native Sybil (Mac) MacKenzie, in town to choreograph a local theatre’s production of ‘South Pacific,’ is becoming moonstruck.
