Her most recent book is her lyric anthology MONGRELS AND MISFITS. She is a contributing writer of 11 books. Patterson has played in 15 countries across the Americas, Europe, Australia and Asia. She appears on over 120 albums (including seven solo albums of her own) in addition to a smattering of soundtracks, videos, commercials and voice-overs. Various artists have recorded over a hundred of her compositions and co-writes. She studied ethnomusicology at University College, Cork in Ireland and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Therapy from Loyola University New Orleans.

Beth has occasionally worn other hats as a body paint model, film extra, minor role actor, recording studio partner, record label owner, producer and visual artist. She is a lover of exquisitely stupid movies and a shameless fangirl of the band Rush. You can find her at

New Orleans musician and werewolf Birch "Buzz" MacKinlay thinks she's alone in the world until the mysterious and captivating Rowan welcomes her into his pack. Her new pack mates take her through a crash course on the use of her werewolf gifts as she learns all about other shape-shifters in the world. But she also discovers that there is a dark and growing danger to her new world as other "shifters" around her begin to die and disappear. With the menace closing in, her pack must work together with the rest of the “shifter” world to learn who --- or what --- is behind the threat before they are all destroyed.
