Patricia Coombs was born on July 23, 1926 in Los Angeles, California and during her school age years lived in Hawaii, Boston, New York, and San Francisco. She was always reading books and would hide in unusual places to avoid getting caught reading instead of playing. She attended DePauw University, Michigan State University, and received her bachelor's and master's degrees in English from the University of Washington. She also studied poetry at New York University.

In 1962, Coombs wrote and illustrated Dorrie's Magic, which was highly praised by the New York Times Book Review. According to Coombs, this article bolstered her confidence and started her "Dorrie" series. Since that time, she has written 20 stories about Dorrie and her adventures as a little witch. Coombs has also illustrated for other authors and contributed to Poetry Magazine.

Dorrie the Little Witch Series
Dorrie is a little witch whose "hat is always on crooked and her stockings never match" (Coombs, 1964). She has a black cat named Gink. She lives with her mother, the Big Witch, and their house hand, Cook.

Dorrie's Magic, 1962 (out of print)
Dorrie and the Blue Witch, 1964 (out of print) – When Dorrie is left home alone by the Big Witch, she decides to have a tea party with Gink. There is a knock on the door. Expecting Cook to arrive any minute, Dorrie opens the door. Instead of Cook, she finds the bad Blue Witch. Dorrie scours Cook's magic cabinet, uses its contents to capture the Blue Witch and receives a gold cauldron for her efforts.
Dorrie's Play, 1965 (out of print) – Shooed away by the Big Witch and Cook, Dorrie decides to put on a play with Gink. Dorrie picks up some cloth from the sewing room to use for her play. Not realizing it is the Big Witch's costume for the Costume Ball, she has Cook cut it and then uses it for stage curtains.
