Patricia Elliott lives in Beautiful British Columbia with her husband of 21 years and their three children. Now that their lovely kids are all teenagers, she has decided to actively pursue her passion for the written word. When she was a youngster, she spent the majority of her time writing fanfiction and poetry to avoid the harsh reality of bullying. Writing allowed her to escape into another world, even if temporarily; a world in which she could be anyone or anything, even a mermaid. Dreams really can come true. If you believe it, you can achieve it!
