I write contemporary romance novels with metaphysical elements. As soon as I have a book to promote it will be added to the pages!

I also write nonfiction as Therese Patrick and am currently completing a memoir about my parents and childhood: My sittin’ mommy and her sweetheart

C. Morgan Kennedy and I (as Therese Patrick)  have created Author Marketing 101 which has FREE marketing advice and actionable tips. We present workshops, do private consultations, and are currently creating a workbook.

On a personal note – I’ve been called a force of nature, Mary Sunshine, an unusual person, totally Yin with no Yang, and this means I laugh lots, whine occasionally and am always trying to figure out “the meaning of life.”

My husband Ed and I have four daughters, two grandsons, and have moved seven times.  My professional life transitioned with each birth and move from a bookkeeper to office manager, tech writer and recently, business consultant.  There were a few years of working in home health care, geriatrics and hospice.  With my youngest daughter now in college, I have returned as well and am working toward my AAOT in Arts & Letters.

I currently volunteer for: Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Oregon and Rose City Romance Writers.

I’m also a member of Romance Writers of America and Willamette Writers.  Formerly I volunteered as secretary for EAA Chapter 902-Mulino OR.

Writing and reading are a main focus in my life but I also enjoy gardening, cooking, kayaking and cycling.  Ed and our daughters have brought country living, dogs, a horse, bunny, cats and mole-dirt-mountains into my daily life.  Ed’s also a private pilot and introduced me to a variety of airplanes, motorcycles and power watercraft.  After traveling with him for over a year I’ve mastered the details of being a savvy traveler.

Life is an adventure, I’ve chosen to take that journey.
