Patricia Borlenghi, who suffers from severe hearing loss, studied at the Universities of Reading, Bologna and Essex as well as working in publishing over many years. She is the author of several children’s books including: From Albatross to Zoo, Chaucer the Cat and the Animal Pilgrims, Dear Auntie and The Bloomsbury Nursery Treasury. She started the Patrician Press in December 2012 after completing her MA in Creative Writing. She divides her time between England and Italy.
The philosophy and aim of the non-profit Patrician Press is to encourage and promote writers of high-quality fiction and poetry. We are small, independent and courageous. We strongly believe that it is imperative to uphold and maintain the quality of contemporary literature in today’s challenging, competitive and ever-changing technological world.
Our titles are available in smart paperback editions and some as e-books.
The list includes novels, short stories, poetry and non-fiction. Some of the books have an Italian flavour, and a new series of anthologies are now being produced. Sales from proceeds are going to various charities.
A children’s imprint, Pudding Press, was launched in March 2015.
