MEET PATRICIA [TRISHA] RICKETTS:
Patricia [Trisha] Ricketts received a lifelong love of music, the written word, the visual arts, and healthy arguing from her Irish Catholic family of origin. She’s been penning essays, short stories, poems, and novels for most of her life as she raised three wonderful children and has watched seven grandchildren grow.
However, after receiving a scholarship to the University of Edinburgh in Creative Writing, her passion for writing escalated. Since then, she has had short stories published in New Directions, The Slate, Meta, The Blue Hour Magazine, Realize Magazine, Storied Stuff , and on NPR’s “This I Believe” website. Her love of writing flows into her musical lyrics.
During the pandemic, she’s written nearly a song a week—some better than others! Trisha has performed her own work at open mics and hosted musical events in and around Chicago with her artist and musician partner, Peter Hurley. Having recently published her second novel, Speed of Dark, she is way into working on her third novel, The End of June, due out in fall 2023.
