patricia-bernardI grew up in Melbourne and Rosebud, Victoria and had a great life full of adventure and freedom. I had a dog called Pal and a bicycle called Tonto. With Pal in my bike basket I rode everywhere. Our family had Manx cats (that's cats with no tails from the Isle of Man) and a horse.

When I was eighteen I travelled with my best friend Janet up the east coast of Australia picking fruit, getting lost in the Blue Mountains, learning how to be a waitress and working in Worth's Circus.

When I was nineteen I went with my mother to England on THE BIG TRIP. I worked in London as a kindergarten teacher and a youth leader then I travelled all over Europe picking tomatoes in Spain, grapes in France, cooking on a boat from Barcelona to Mallorca, dating a bullfighter in Granada, eating Dutch pancakes in an attic whilst working in a Dutch lolly factory, taught English in Athens, ate 1 penny soup in Morocco, became a footpath artist in Paris and a nanny in Sweden for the Royal Family of Stucklebergs. During this time I met three lifelong friends, Jeannie a crazy English girl and Dina and Robyn two insane Australian Spanish dancers. I then went to Canada and the U.S.A. on my way to Brazil.

In Canada I met my Jamaican husband on a staircase, which is why I always thought he was taller. I didn't reach Brazil until ten years later. We had 4 children, one in Jamaica, one in London, one in Geelong and one in Sydney, 3 girls and 1 boy.

On returning to Australia, and realising I had been insane to stay away from the sun and the lifestyle for so long, we settled in Paddington, Sydney.

Years later I sent my middle daughter to Jamaica for one year's boarding school. She came back so much nicer having seen poverty and how hard Jamaican's study to get ahead. She is now a well-known public speaker/motivation and conference organiser for Landmark Education travelling throughout Australia, New Zealand, U.S.A. and India. My eldest daughter is also a motivational speaker and Course Leader for Landmark Education and has spoken to over 400,000 students throughout the world. My third daughter is a school teacher in the Blue Mountains and my son is a personal trainer. I have five brilliant grandchildren who I put in my books--see 'Legend of the Three Moons'.

I always sketched, painted, kept diaries and wrote letters when travelling, although my spelling was so bad no one could understand them. When I was thirty, a friend, Fiona, asked me to write a book for her television show. After I explained how badly I spelt, how I didn't know where to put a comma or how to start a paragraph, I started writing RIDDLE OF THE TRUMPALAR. Thirty-eight books later I am still writing.

    For hundreds of years, the Eastern Zoners have slaved for the Megas--the technologically advanced beings living behind the walled city of Megalopolis. Each eighteen-year-old scavenges a living in the deadly Arid Zone until they either turn twenty-one or they're killed...


    Book 1: Outcast

    A Mega throwback is expendable! No one wants him. Not the Zoner village where he was born or the hated Megas he resembles. In the Arid Zone's harsh conditions, death can come at any time...


    As a Mega Outcast child living in a garbage dump surrounding the walled, glass-and-steel city of Megalopolis, Fish was brought up in a farming tribal community where technologically-advanced Megas are feared and hated. Having turned seventeen, Fish is pushed over the border of his village into the gas pits and rubbish heaps that house the many clusters of outcasts who clean the city for those who consider them inferior between the hours of midnight and dawn.

    Outcasts are only allowed to return to their Zoner village if they're chosen as mates. But none of the tribe females would willingly choose Fish, given his extreme height and skinniness, his white hair and green eyes. Then he sees Ari, who's also thin, tall, white-haired and green-eyed...but she's about to be thrown off the Ritual Pier.

    Super-intelligent Megas have invented the 'Knowledge Chip', which is inserted into a baby's head. The better the Chip, the better the Megas lifestyle and the higher their position in the city. Ari's parents put too many chips in their daughter's brain, causing mental regression. Unless a substitute brain can be found for her, she'll be discarded at the pier. Can Fish save her? 


    Book 2: The Punisher

    Fish is an eighteen-year-old Outcast, living in the harsh Arid Zone. When the golden-clawed bear predicts his death, three Outcasts are plunged deep into the heart of the Wilderness Mountains in search of their friend--and Fish's chosen mate--Ari. In order to save her from a short life with the Wilderness gypsies, they'll discover the finger-eating High Priestess of the Oriacans called the PUNISHER, the insane Swan King, and his cruel brother. But, to get to Ari and pass through the Southern Zone alive, Fish must first beat Thief, the Champion of the Southern Zone, in their Mighty Arena.


    Book 3: Rule Changer

    The Oriacans are on the move and will soon break down defences erected by the Kinsmen of the Wilderness Mountains. Follow Outcasts Fish, Ari, Weed and Branch as they flee over the Glass Teeth Peaks to warn their fellow Outcasts, Zoners and Megas of the impending war and encounter the golden-clawed bear that scarred Weed so many years ago. The Outcasts struggle to keep their living-time and discover the source of the three promises of the golden-clawed bear.
