I’m Patricia, and I’m a writer. I live in Michigan, the home state I love three seasons out of the year and am thankful for the joy of Christmas in during the fourth.

A member of Redbud Writers Guild, my current work in progress is about deeply personal issues such as loss and grief, specifically as it relates to miscarriage. I explore what it’s like to navigate the path of pregnancy loss in a world that often wants us to “just get over it already.” Miscarriage, and all its overwhelming emotions, is one of the things people rarely talk about. I want to change that.

Throughout these pages, I also write about my love of God, strong coffee and getting my hands dirty in the garden. I invite you to visit my blog, and to connect with me on Facebook and Twitter.

Even as an introvert, I crave a strong sense of community. A space that welcomes and celebrates a variety of voices. Pitch-perfect, a tad sharp, slightly flat or, like mine, hopelessly off-key but shared with gusto. Won’t you please join in?
