Precious Patty

I was a Nurse for 22 years and have many different experiences in that career. I was a single Mother for almost 10 years before my second marriage. My past life experiences have given me many topics to write about in my Creative writing career. There has been sadness but a lot of joy. I have four children and nine grandchildren. I have found if you write about what you know it comes easier. I have had some success in publishing but have a long way to go.
