Pat grew up in rural Wisconsin and has lived in Michigan, California, and Minnesota.

“I couldn't eat because that book made me cry so hard, I couldn't even breathe. Connie said to keep reading and keep breathing, like that was easy. Tears and snot just about came out my butt, I cried so hard”
Pat Schmatz, Bluefish

“Read them out loud, and take it slow. When you hit a comma, stop and chew. When you hit a period, swallow. Don't try to eat any circled words.”
Pat Schmatz, Bluefish

“There’s nothing in here but empty.”
Pat Schmatz, Bluefish
