Hi, I’m Violet Patton. I write humorous cozy mysteries set in places I love. Hot Springs, Arkansas is one of my favorite places. Unfortunately, I live a long way from there. I love to reminisce about my favorite spots: Oaklawn Race Track, Central Avenue and its famous bathhouses, The Ohio and the Arlington Hotel. I’ve spent plenty of time along the shores of Lake Hamilton enjoying the beauty of the area.
In my spare time, I take care of an old man who loves a dog, ham & eggs and to annoy me. I have three wonderful grandchildren who I enjoy spoiling. I don’t have hobbies since writing full-time takes up most of my time.
I’ve seen a ghost, scared the daylights out of me, and I never want to see one again. Did it make me believe in ghosts? Maybe. I’m a touchy-feely kind of gal. If I can’t touch, feel or eat it, it’s hard for me to believe something as odd as a ghost. I do enjoy bringing the possibility of a ghost to life. They make great characters who can do things otherwise impossible for mere humans.
I hope you enjoy reading my Bathhouse Row Soapery and Desert Oasis series. I try to post interesting tidbits in Violet’s Cozy Chat on Facebook. Click over and join the group. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
