The authenticity is added to by personal experience - for example my brother-in-law was affected with Down Syndrome and my PhD work involved disability studies- the combination of all of those factors aided in the creation of Perry. Thanks for a great question!(less)

Post-Fake Hawaiian Apocalypse: Day 15

Aloha from the still existing great and gullible state of Hawaii... Yeah. After the fact I totally get that a missile heading for Hawaii was unlikely, but on a Saturday morning before my tenth cup of coffee I have a very high threshold (or is it low threshold?) for believing three impossible things before breakfast. Anyway I decided my long neglected blog ought to be revived... either that or I po Read more of this blog post »

Thanks for the invite!


Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hi Patricia and thanks so much for adding me! If you have time, I'd love for you to visit my web site, jeanniebarber.com. I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it. I’m co-authoring a novel with Patty Wiseman, another friend on Goodreads. We’ve known each other for over 30 years. While you're there, please sign the guestbook, too!
Blessings,
Jeannie


Chester Hi, Patricia. Congratulations on your success with Lottery. Sounds like you've been a busy bee. I have a grandson living in Hawaii now, where his wife is an Army LT at Schofield Barracks. Good luck with your writing.

Liz Thanks for your invitation to add as a friend, Patricia. I'm a fellow Washingtonian, but I live north of Seattle in the Skagit Valley (where all the tulips are). Love the picture of you with all the rigging in the background. My romance/intrigue Mist of Quarry Harbor was set in a place very like Roche Harbor.

Congrats on the success of your first book! It sounds like you've had enough experiences to write a library full.

Best of Luck,
