Olivia Matthews is the cozy mystery pseudonym of national best-selling author Patricia Sargeant. A voracious reader, Patricia has been inspired by writers such as Walter Mosley, Dick Francis and Tami Hoag, who put ordinary characters in extraordinary situations. Her Sister Lou character was inspired by Catholic sisters whose courage, determination and faith have helped build communities and formed rich, lasting legacies. Patricia loves to hear from readers.
