"I had the pleasure of attending Patricia Bates' marketing workshop recently. It was absolutely amazing and extremely informative. Patricia was very knowledgableable in her answers when asked questions which were most helpful and insightful. Such a fun and laid back atmosphere. I will definitely be attending more of her workshops and highly recommend everyone attend one."

Hi, I’m Patricia Bates, Canadian Romance Author, coach, podcaster, and designer.

I started my career in 2008 with my first Historical Romance. Since then, I've gone on to write over two dozen romance books under two names. I've worked as an editor, as a marketer, publisher, and am applying the skills I've learned over the last few years in my indie career and seeing growth.
