About Me

Mirella Sichirollo Patzer 

Historical Fiction Author

First generation Italian/Canadian, I was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, but grew up in Calgary, a city famous for the Calgary Stampede, oil companies, and the wild west. I attended the University of Calgary where I specialized in leadership and human resources. I have worked as a bilingual secretary, police radio operator, and administrative manager.

I write sweeping historical novels set in exciting periods of history. From the medieval eras to the early 18th century, my novels feature intriguing characters and fascinating heroines. My favourite setting is Italy, for that's where the root of my passion lies, the roots of my strong Italian heritage, but I have also written about early Canada and medieval Germany.

I love a clean orderly house but hate housework, detest winter, and is a mild claustraphobic. My passions are books and reading, cooking, writing, and a good helping of my home-made tira-mi-su - a recipe that will rival those of the best Italian restaurants. I live in Cochrane, Alberta, with my husband and family.
