"Hello Leza - Thanks for connecting with me here. I'm not spending nearly enough time on this excellent site but plan to amend that after I publish my next novel in April. I should have some time to breathe then ... you know what that's all…"
Toronto, Canada is home in the summer (when we're not somewhere else) and winters are spent in Florida. With a happily blended family of 7 adult children and 6 grandchildren, life is full and time is short. A story-teller through photography all my life, my first novel The Bridge Club was self-published through iUniverse in September 2010 winning Editor's Choice, Rising Star, and Reader's Choice awards. Currently a finalist in General Fiction for Foreword Reviews 2010 Book Of The Year. The social media learning curve has been steep!

Hi Patricia, oh no problems at all! I found your message in my normal e-mail box but couldn't locate it on the site until now. The best way for me to stay in contact is probably though my messages, rather than via my profile page...speaking of which I really ought to have a peep at it to check if anyone else has been in touch...oh dear, oh dear! :-) xxx
Hi Patricia, Yes, I wasn't sure how to navigate my way around at first and admit, it is a bit of a labyrinth this site, where/how to find the gems in an other than random way?? One of the things that helped me the most was to ask a question via a group, when I started a blog and didn't have much of a clue and suddenly I found a community of like minded souls.
It's a great resource and wonderful helpful members and so many gems of advice or pure inspiration. Nice to meet you and hear of your french encounters.
You're welcome Patricia. I am having the same problem. I don't have much time and there is so much going on at SW that it is hard to focus on what would be best for me to be involved in. I want to connect more to others on this site, but I barely have time to write, so I also am on here sporadically and don't contribute as I would like. When you have a chance, write back! Take care.
Hi, Patricia! I hope you win: "Currently a finalist in General Fiction for Foreword Reviews 2010 Book Of The Year." That's insane-wow! I was going to review for those folks but had to bow out because my schedule was a bear at that point. But it's a very impressive publication, so all good luck to you. Very impressive!

"Your success is inspiring, especially since you live in the Netherlands. I live in Japan, and I've often wondered if being an expat is damaging to my career as a writer. I loved your first book, by the way, and I look forward to reading Mamba…"
