When I am not writing or teaching, I enjoy playing with my two Golden Retrievers who are quite literary. Their names are Rabelais and Guy de Maupassant and they both enjoy French literature and cuddling on the couch with me and their daddy, Gene


Background Information

Patricia Flinn is a woman of many interests. Besides writing a book of short stories, entitled The Listerine Lunatic Hits Hoboken and Other Strange Tales, she has co-authored a novel Penfield Prep Volumes One and Two with her husband, Eugene, about the zany world of an exclusive private school. She has taught literature in several universities, including Rutgers and New Jersey City University, completed the Boston Marathon and six others, acted in and directed plays in university and regional theaters, and earned a Ph.D. at New York University writing of Yeats, Synge, O'Casey, and Lady Gregory, the founders of the Abbey Theater in Dublin. She was born and raised in Hoboken, where her late father, Louis Pean, was a heroic firefighter and her mother, Helen, loved to tell stories to the little children in Our Lady of Grace Orphanage. Her brother, Jim, who was also a writer, died in 2006. Although several of Patricia's stories deal with the loss of loved ones, her writing tends toward the comic and the absurd.
