Women’s Fiction Writing Association. Emma Joy Olson, an instructor for two of the recent writing classes I took, told me about this organization and I signed up immediately. It has provided a wealth of information and support and I strongly advise anyone who writes, to sign up. Through a recent Facebook page begun within the group, I have also been connected with other reputable organizations and writing guidance.

Always in search of an adventure, I set off in my post college days to student teach in Dublin, Ireland, followed by travels across Europe to Israel when my mother insisted I come home to California and start working. Two years later, I joined the Peace Corps where I met my husband, while serving in Lesotho, Southern Africa. That was over 39 years ago, and when the real adventure began. Our three children are avid outdoors people and occasionally are patient enough to invite their mother rafting, hiking, climbing or mountain biking. If not outside, I work on the arduous task of becoming a writer, my lifelong dream. Hopefully, I have improved since my childhood when I'd beg my mother to publish my poems. How could she have resisted the Poet with a Toet, or Who Knows What A Nose Can Do? View all posts by Patty's Parlance
