About this author

Patricia is a retired veteran of the Travel Industry. She worked for two airlines and three travel agencies, the last, one of the world's largest, for twenty years. Her book, Downsized To Death, is about a working, travel agent manager of a national travel company, not a tour escort, facing downsizing when murder is added to her work load.
She lives on a floating home in Oregon. Her short story, The Critique Group, appears in the new anthology, Fish Tales-The Guppy Anthology, and it take place in a floating home moorage.

This was a very quick read. Talk about a time when people actually sat around telling stories. A doctor remembering a possible murder, that played out as he moved around the world. Well worth reading.
