Patty Wiseman

Challenge! Conquer! Change!


Living the life...


After 24 years working as an administrative assistant to a financial advisor, Mrs. Wiseman is now retired and devoting her time to her writing career. Writing was always her dream in life. Before meeting her husband, Ron, of now 21 years, she was a single mom raising her boys, Scott and Lance, working full-time to support her family. Though the day-to-day life was busy and overwhelming, Patty was determined to make the dream of being a successful author a reality. This gave her an anchor to the individuality and identity every busy wife and mom struggles to maintain. As a woman we carry many titles – so-and-so’s mom, so-and-so’s wife, etc. – and battle that inner war of who we are. Patty’s success was nurtured and fulfilled by her actions during those tough years.

Patty writes clean, fiction stories about the challenges women have faced in the past and continue to face today. The characters are in the throws of a time of transition, struggling to maintain their own identity or simply dealing with the unexpected events that life throws at them. Her published and future novels cover a variety of genres — from the her love of stories that inspire and encourage, to those suspenseful dramas that keep you on the edge of your seat, and adventurous journeys of those who have overcome society’s constraints.

Though she continues to enjoy her success, she remembers the struggle of realizing her dream and has a true desire to help other women overcome the obstacles they face within themselves regardless of society’s limitations. Patty has become a valued resource to women around the world as a motivational speaker, living example and role model. Through her website and workshops she coaches women of all ages giving hope by spotlighting inspiring women as role models and providing sage advice from life’s experiences.  Her humorous anecdotes provide the much needed perspective on life we sometimes need and support the building blocks of living the life you’ve always wanted while maintaining our roles as wife, mom and career-builder.

An Unlikely Beginning

Danger and intrigue continue to plague Ruth Squire in an illusive search for
happiness in the perilous era of the Roaring Twenties.

In the far corner of a seedy speakeasy known as the Blue Feather, seventeen
year old Ruth Squire tried to avoid the interested eye of a repugnant patron.
The impatient bartender waved his hand toward the stage--it was her turn to
sing, but the metallic taste of fear drenched her tongue and slithered downward
until her stomach burned. She took a step back.

A female voice whispered from behind, "Remember why we are doing this Ruthie.
You can't abandon him now."

Slowly, courage overtook the fear. One step--another, until she stood center stage.
The piano began the prelude, and she closed her eyes. A few tremulous notes
exhaled through ruby lips, but strengthened as memories of the murderous carnage
at home unfolded and steeled her will. The choice to save him was hers. Instead of
a pack of crude, bawdy men in a smoke filled room, she envisioned Peter, the man
she came to rescue. Her eyes opened, and she remembered...

velvet-shoe-collection-books-onlyIt is said that we should not judge a book by it's cover. We can, however, judge a book by what others say about it.

This is what others have said about 'An Unlikely Arrangement' by author Patty Wiseman:

' . . .loved the fast-pace and surprises . . .'

' . . .loved the twists and turns . . .'

' . . .if you like murder, love, and betrayal you should buy this book . . .'

' . . .an attention grabber . . .'

' . . .loved the cliff hanger ending . . .'

' . . . riveting . . .'


'The skill with which Patty Wiseman uses plot to enchant the reader and keep the pages turning is evident. In An Unlikely Arrangement, there is a surprise at every turn, and just when you think you've figured out the ending, Patty unveils the most gripping part of the story, where the fates of several parties become even further entangled. The end of the book is a cliff hanger that leaves the reader eager for the sequel, yet satisfied enough with several burning questions answered. The setting of Detroit 1929 takes the reader into another world. Patty's knowledge of people's characters and reactions to life's traumas give the book a deep and believable appeal. An Unlikely Arrangement is a book that, once started, is hard to put down.'

- Amazon review


Patty Wiseman leads the reader through a journey of emotions - love, hate and unquenchable fear. Spell bound, the reader cannot stop reading, anticipating a resolution without tragedy. But in the end the reader realizes life is not a fantasy. No leniency is allowed and reality storms through to the end.“
