Author of the wildly imaginative Crimson vampire series, currently consisting of (6) novels: The Crimson Man, The Crimson Boy, The Crimson Woman, The Crimson Time, The Crimson Crimes and The Crimson Dream. The sixth in the series The Crimson Dream was officially released in the City of Ottawa in Oct 2014. The Crimson vampire series takes place in Ottawa, Canada and has been described as sensual, pulp fiction thrillers - humour and eroticism shine throughout. You have yet to read as unpredictable a series as Patricia's Crimson novels. She has also authored three collections of erotic poetry. Her short stories and poetry have been published in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.

So long as your fingers work, your mind is ticking, and your imagination is willing you should always be ready and able to write, even if it's just a short story or a two-line stanza of poetry. I've encountered novelists who tell me they've been dealing with writer's block for years and can't get started and I always give them the same answer: That's bullocks! Start with the first sentence even if all you are writing is your rage being poured out to express your frustration. That first sentence will lead to the second and so forth. Writer's block is a way of telling the world that I can't or won't write unless I know for sure that what I'm going to write will be brilliant. Admit it to yourself that your work in the beginning is nothing more than primordial ooze. That's why editors were invented to help transform the primordial ooze into a pile of excrement that is ultimately shaped into a beautiful thing.(less)

Any artist who pours their heart and soul into their work can attest to that feeling when you've accomplished your goal. Sure there are times when self-doubt leaves you pulling your hair out. However, these times are eventually over-shadowed by the whole experience of getting it right, and setting out to do something that no one in the right mind should want to do. LOL(less)
