Biography

Patricia Bernard also writes under the pen name of P. Scot-Bernard

Patricia Bernard is an Australian writer of speculative fiction and children's books. She grew up in Melbourne and Rosebud, Victoria with a dog called Pal and a bicycle called Tonto, Manx cats, and a horse. When she was eighteen, she travelled with her best friend up the east coast of Australia picking fruit, getting lost in the Blue Mountains, learning how to be a waitress, and working in Worth's Circus.

At the age of nineteen, she went with her mother to England on The Big Trip, worked in London as a kindergarten teacher and a youth leader, then travelled all over Europe -- picking tomatoes in Spain and grapes in France, cooking on a boat from Barcelona to Mallorca, dating a bullfighter in Granada, eating Dutch pancakes in an attic whilst working in a Dutch lolly factory, teaching English in Athens, eating 1-penny soup in Morocco, working as a footpath artist in Paris, and serving as a nanny in Sweden for the Royal Family of Stucklebergs. She then went to Canada, where she met her Jamaican husband, with whom she has 4 children. After living in Brazil, she moved back to Australia with her family.

She always sketched, painted, kept diaries and wrote letters when travelling, but did not start writing until she was thirty and a friend asked her to write a book for her television show. Sixty-eight books later, she is still writing.

Bernard and her husband live in Paddington, Sydney.
