Pat Reynolds was born (in 1963) and brought up in Northamptonshire, England. Her mother was local, her father from Nottinghamshire (which goes to explain her accent).
She is addicted
to learning, although this was not evident while she was at school. She has
a BA in English (too many language courses to get a joint language-and-literature
degree!), an MA in English Language and Literature before 1525, and another
in Museum Studies. She recently finished up a PhD in Archaeology.
Her working life
has included work
for numerous museums, and she iscurrently Heritage Manager for Surrey.
When she isn’t
researching “Dutch” buildings
and running a joint archive-library-archaeology-museum service, Pat likes reading fantasy and science fiction (she is hon. archivist of the Tolkien Society) and attending sf conferences, drinking Italian wine, demonstrating her new Cozmo insulin pump to anyone who will feed her chocolate, and planning a holiday in Japan.
