To tell a compelling story…

Once upon a time…

Posted on: January 19, 2010

I love to write. I mean, LOVE to write.  A blank page or screen doesn’t fill me with dread – it fills me with excitement. Will I write fantasy or reality? Fact or fiction? In first person or third?

I’ve been telling stories for years. I enjoy the slow, delicious build of tension with every turn of the page….( and then what happened?) I love getting inside characters’ heads and knowing them better than I know some people.

Now it’s time for me to seek commercial validation. This blog will feature the lessons I learn on the road to publication and the rantings of the lunatic I am for seeking them.

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Patty.

I'm a writer represented by Denise Little, The Ethan Ellenberg Agency. I love to tell stories, to boast about my sons, to indulge in a serious chocolate obsession. (I often combine these passions.)

During the day, I write software user guides, but at night, I let my hair down... and write whatever I want. (I know. You expected something else. Sorry.) I'm currently working on a YA story about sexting gone horribly bad called SEND. I use this blog to explore my passions.

We’re Book Hungry!

My twitta sistas and I were chatting one day a few weeks back and thought, "Hey! We should start a Book Club!" So, we did.

Watch our blogs; we're each posting our reviews blog-fest style!
