Patricia Iles

Biography

I believe in the power of the storyteller: from the famous filmmaker to your grandmother's stories about her youth, I think a passion for stories are hard-wired into our minds.

Films give us stories that are shown to us in vibrant detail. Books let us create that colorful image in our own minds. I love both and always have.

Let me take you on a journey in your imagination. You'll meet some new people and get a look into their lives. You will like some of those people, and you may hate some others. You may find yourself reaching for a tissue while you read, and you might even laugh out loud a few times.

I write for fun. I blog for fun. I cook for fun. And I clean because I have to.
