Three fun facts:
Patti lives in sunny Southwest Florida under a palm tree with her rescued hound and her rescued husband, both of whom she found on the internet. She owns zero pairs of socks and will wear a tiara whenever she wants to feel confident. Her favorite non-publishing job ever was as a professional hula dancer when she was 17.
