Before retiring they owned and ran a family hotel in Scarborough, where Pat became a spiritual healer and healing tutor for her local church,this is where she first got her inspirations for writing poetry. Pat's urge to write more came when she was overwhelmed with fear and anxiety because one of her children was seriously ill, writing helped her through all the worry, by giving her a deep sense of calm, she was able to set all her emotions to verse. Her child eventually recovered then Pat realised there were many more painful memories in her life that had left her with shadows of fear, insecurities and unexpressed grief.

"By putting all my thoughts and memories into verse I found relief from all the heartache and sadness that I'd carried through my life from the past. It was therapeutic and I felt I was being guided to rediscover a life of triumph and joy, my writing poetry gave me strength and pleasure, which I now hope others will share when reading my books"

Although Pat is known on most poetry sites as Pat Simpson, she publishes her books using her full name : Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson.
