Personally Patty

patty-conversationI am the creator and author of 'The Velvet Shoe Collection'. All three books in the 3 book series are out and available to purchase. An Unlikely Arrangement is the 1st book and introduces you to Ruth Squire, a young, rebellious woman of the 1920's. Unable to control their daughter, Ruth's parents attempt a solution that sets off a change reaction of mystery, intrigue, and romance. The 2nd book An Unlikely Beginning continues the saga as my characters try to make sense of the secrets from the past. The 3rd book in the series, An Unlikely Conclusion, continues the story of the difficulties of the couples romance and finally reveals all the secrets that threaten to derail their love. A train wreck almost destroys everything.

A dream I've had for a long time has finally come true! I'm married, have two grown sons, a step-daughter, and a passel of grandchildren and am living a life full of challenges at every turn. But what is life, if not an adventure? I grew up in Tacoma, Washington, the second of four children. My dad was a WWII Pearl Harbor Survivor. I went to college in Bartlesville, Okla. and moved to NE Texas 30 plus years ago. I have recently retired and am now writing full time.

Life is very busy, and I'm very protective of my writing time. I spent 24 years as Administrative Assistant to a Financial Advisor. My interests are writing, of course, and I am an avid reader. I love to bowl, dance, and I adore baseball. I watch every game I can. I also love to garden and find the peaceful time in the soil a great time to let my characters have free rein. I hope you will follow my journey and share my joy.
