Orange Prize Shortlist Writer Patricia Wood joins The View from Here Crew


Patricia Wood whose first novel Lottery was short listed for one of the UK's most prestigious literary prizes, the 2008 Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction, joins the team here at the View From Here.

"It was an incredible experience just to be nominated and long listed. When I found out I was on the short list I was not allowed to tell anyone for a week and I practically burst." 
Patricia Wood

Patricia lives on The SV Orion off Hawaii and is a bundle of talent, wisdom and fun all rolled in one. An avid SCUBA diver, Patricia has done everything from assisting with shark research to winning the Hawaii State Jumper Championship with her horse Airborne.

Patricia joins our new team of interviewers here at the magazine and will be using her wit, knowledge and insights to bring you the authors behind some of your favourite novels.

We are, to say the least, excited!  Aloha and welcome onboard Patricia!

While this side of the planet was sleeping, you lot were having a party, it seems - biscuits or no biscuits.
