Patty, can you tell us about yourself and your background? What do you currently do outside of writing?

Thank you for having me, Jess. I’m really excited to be here. We’ve been friends for a long time and navigated this journey together. Look how far we’ve come! I’m retired from a 25-year career with an investment company. I enjoy traveling, attending festivals with my husband, Ron, who creates beautiful animals out of Freon tanks. We love selling my books and his art together at the many festivals around Texas. We have a crème lab. His name is Cutter, and I actually wrote a children’s book about him. Between us, we have 3 children, 11 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. My upbringing was in Seattle, Washington. I went to college in Bartlesville, Okla., and moved to Texas 40 years ago. Love the weather in Texas!

What prompted you to write what you did? [or Where do you get your writing inspiration?] What message(s) do you want readers to take away?

I was very young when the writing bug bit. But life got in the way—college, marriage, children. Finally, when I retired, I was free to pursue my passion, and I haven’t looked back. My grandmother told stories about her days as a flapper in the 1920s, and those stories stayed with me and inspired the historical romances of my 1st four books. From there, I just wrote what was on my heart at the time. I write about strong women who face tough odds but manage to pull through. My children’s book was inspired by our dog, Cutter, who was instrumental in saving two baby foxes who almost drowned in our pond. I’m waiting for him to do something else so I can continue the stories he inspired! My books all have happy endings and show what women can do once they put their minds to it. I hope my readers will see how strong women really are!

 

 

Do you write short stories, articles, or have a blog? Where can we find them?

I have written short stories, and I have a blog. You can find them on www.pattywiseman.com

I also have a podcast where I tell short stories. You can find that on https://anchor.fm/patty-wiseman

 

 

What do you find the hardest about writing? The easiest?

The hardest thing for me is research. I love it, but it is time-consuming. I try to make sure the settings are correct, so they don’t throw the reader off—especially historical books. The easiest thing is sitting in my office and letting the story flow. I tend to get it down on the computer and do my editing later. I love those sessions where the words come easy.

 

 

What’s next for you after An Unlikely Elegance?

This book is the fifth book in my series. I want to go back and try to write another children’s book next. I have so many other stories I want to write, as well. So many ideas. They come faster as time goes on.

 

 

What special thing about yourself would you like to share with readers?

Special thing? Well, I love to mentor new writers. I’ve been the President of the East Texas Writer’s Association for the past three years. I love to answer questions about writing, how to get started, etc. To watch them publish their first book is a great reward for me!
