About Pat Manning

Patricia Ridler was born at Blackheath in 1929, the youngest in a family of three. Educated at the Beckenham County School for Girls and Imperial College, London, she is a scientist, not an historian. She married Michael James Manning, merchant navy engineer, in 1951 and they had three boys and a girl. Teaching fitted in with raising a family and so she taught Mathematics and Science, especially Biology at her old shcool. Retirement gave Pat the chance to write and she established Jenna Publishing in memory of her dog Jenna to put her first two books into print. Research into the fascinating Cator family provided an ideal topic for this her third book.
