My Debut

Have I mentioned how happy I am to be here? I'd like to thank the original Crime Sistahs - Angela, Gammy and Pamela - for their warm welcomes.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. I'm Patricia Sargeant and I write romantic suspense. My debut novel, You Belong To Me, reunites a divorced couple in a race to unmask a serial killer. You may have read on this blog that You Belong To Me earned third place in the Reviewers International Organization's 2006 Award of Excellence in its Favorite Debut Novel category. That was quite a thrill.

My second romantic suspense, On Fire, is a September 2007 release. Four months and counting. Are my nerves showing? On Fire's hero is a fire investigator. The heroine is a reporter. The two begin as adversaries but become allies when they realize the string of arsons they're investigating is connected to a series of murders.

I enjoy the romantic suspense subgenre because it mixes two of my favorite elements - romance and supense. They're a powerful combination. Love is the ultimate character motivation and suspense keeps you in the story.

Thank you for letting me introduce myself. I look forward to getting to know you.

I missed it! I kept checking back to read your debut hot off the press, chip, drive, whatever... and I missed it.

Oh well. I look forward to reading your blogs!
