Pat Dunlap Evans writes novels for readers who want to fall in love with the main characters. Her forté is emotionally told stories about people who struggle to find their way...often facing danger, but always finding humor and love along the way.


Pat was born in Michigan but quickly found herself mostly Texan. From age two, her family lived in San Antonio and then Dallas, where she attended South Oak Cliff High School and Southern Methodist University, eventually completing her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English at University of Missouri, Kansas City.

After a 17-year marriage to a pro-football quarterback, Pat stressed her way through 25 years of varied advertising and marketing roles before quitting the day job to write and edit novels.


She lives in the Lake Travis area of Austin with her second husband Bill, and the couple enjoys travel, golf, and the escapades of their combined five adult children, five grandchildren, one great-grandson, one great-granddaugter, and two Cockalier dogs, named after the couple's favorites: Meryl Streep and Lord Byron.
