Pat Mestern has always called the Upper Grand River Valley in southern Ontario home. The combination of its beautiful natural heritage and multi-cultural diversity – the Scots, Irish, English, German, Mennonite and Amish settled this vibrant area – plays a major role in forming the characterizations and settings for her works of historical fiction that are set in Canada. Traveling and writing provide her with endless ideas for scenarios, time periods and characters for those works of fiction that are set “away”. She credits her upbringing, surrounded by books, music, good conversation and encouragement from family for her love of history, and the ability to write.
