Pat Barr was born in Norwich, Norfolk and read English at Birmingham University and University College, London.
Her first non-fiction books, The Coming of the Barbarians and The Deer Cry Pavilion, are about western settlements in Japan, where she once lived for three years. Her other non-fiction books include A Curious Life for a Lady, To China with Love, The Memsahibs and Taming the Jungle, all set in the nineteenth century East. She then turned her hand to fiction with Jade. Pat Barr makes frequent trips to the East, dividing the rest of her time between Blackheath, London and the Hebridean Isle of Coll.
