I met Pat at a NCWN Conference in 2007 while waiting for the elevator. I liked her immediately and when I found her home was Brevard, NC, we embraced her and welcomed her into the group of Netwest writers who had come to the conference.
Pat lived in Pennsylvania at the time, but is now home again in Brevard. I hope to see her more often once she is settled in her new house.
Here is the link to her most recent post. http://novelistapproach.blogspot.com/2012/09/road-to-getting-published.html
You can find her blog link on the sidebar of this blog.
Take note of how many times she read her work and revised her work. Good writers are good re-writers.
