Patricia's entry is an excerpt from her memoir A Roundabout Passage to Venice and you can read it here.
Patricia says, I'm a west coast girl that moved to the east coast and back again. Twice. My imagination has always been etched in music, color and rose-colored glasses. I've had crazy characters and stories banging and fluttering around in my head, dying to get out, since I was old enough to hold a pen. I'm a fan of historical fiction filled with adventure and romance. And I’m addicted to genealogy! My sense of humor runs a little rampant at times, I'm no stranger to laughter, and I love a good anticipation scene. I am proud to state that The Girl Immigrant, the first novel in my Spanish Pearls Series, is being whisked off my shelves. The second book in the series, Silván Leaves, is now available. My next project is a memoir titled, Fairydust to Daffodils about my daughter and her fight with Cystic Fibrosis.
