Pat J. Smith was born in Edmonton on May 11, 1947. She came to Prince George in 1957, before moving to Lantzville. She has an interest in sports and a masters degree in Comparative Literature from UBC, received in 1972. Her irreverent and dry-humoured views of golf are contained in The Golf Widow's Revenge, a portion of which appeared in Cosmopolitan magazine. Begun in 1977 and later revised, her modernist novella of paradoxes, Double Bind, mirrors some of the dilemmas faced by contemporary women.
