"Rachel's writing in Broken Pieces is raw, honest, and difficult to accept at times although we know we must. It is real. Compelling. Bravo!"

"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…"

Profile Information

Who I am:
Patricia Sands lives in Toronto, Canada, when she isn't somewhere else. An admitted travel fanatic, she can pack a bag in a flash and be ready to go anywhere ... particularly the south of France.

Her award-winning debut novel The Bridge Club was published in 2010 and her second novel, The Promise of Provence was an Amazon Hot New Release in April 2013, a USA Best Book 2013 Finalist and a 2013 Finalist in Literary Fiction, National Indie Excellence Awards. A new release is scheduled for Summer 2014.

Celebrating the rewarding friendships and bonds women share, her stories examine the challenges life often throws in our paths. Location features prominently in all of her novels.

The Love In Provence series ~ The Promise of Provence (2013); Promises To Keep (Summer 2014) ~ allows readers to lose themselves in the beauty of the south of France without leaving home.

Frequently invited to speak with women's groups on the subjects of writing and self-publishing, topics also cover the importance of valuing our personal stories and seeing ageing as opportunity. At other events along with her Sommers & Sands speaking partner, author Susan Sommers, through keynotes, workshops and conferences, audiences are encouraged to embrace change and see challenges as opportunities.

Her philosophy is that it's never too late to begin something new, to seize each day and be a possibilitarian! As the saying goes, just do it! Hearing from readers (both men and women, from ages 20 to 84) is her greatest reward.

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--thanks for reaching out! I'd be happy to talk about the article--feel free to email me. Looking forward to staying in touch,

Thank you for the friend request, Patricia. I'm currently up to my ears in proofs but hope to connect with you when I'm finished.

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.

Hey Patricia! I'm with you in needing to tap into so much more of what She Writes offers. I keep up with the e-mail news/blog highlight updates. Good stuff.  Now I need to move on from that. :-)

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! 

Thank you for accepting my friend request. 

I haven't received an answer yet. Any help would be appreciated :) 

Hope you have a great Tuesday.

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!
