Helen Barbara Pattskyn lives with her husband and children (both human and four footed) in a quiet suburb of Detroit, MI. She is working on becoming a full-time writer as well as doing volunteer work and still trying to find time to putter in her garden, watch the stars, and paint.

About the Author
Kathy was born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. She had always wanted to be a writer. Her desire started as far back as grade school when she wrote a poise and etiquette column in her school newspaper. She went on to win two literary awards in college and had articles published in medical magazines. Teachers and writers throughout her life encouraged her to be a writer; however, she had to have a day job to pay the bills and, until modern day self-publishing, the possibility of having a publishing company or even an agent look at your book was almost nonexistent.
Kathy had a diverse career, the first half in the business world and the second half in the medical field, but ... read more

Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Canada at 41, I still call Montreal home. Surrounded by my husband, five children and my Siamese cat I write. I love reading, the smell of spring rain and walking in the first snowfalls of December when the snow is crunchy, especially at night.
I especially enjoy curling up with a book and losing myself in the characters. I turned that love towards writing to create stories I hope you love too. I believe everyone is entitled to their own person happily ever after.

I've had a love of writing for as long as I can remember. I didn't consider making a serious attempt at it until a friend of mine told me about an idea he had for a movie. It was a good idea and our excitment carried me across that decision point from thinking about writing to actually doing it.
We spent the next five years writing full-length spec scripts and shopping them around Hollywood. We got a lot of interest and met with some big names in the business, but we didn't see the kind of success we wanted. We decided to try our hands at other things and stopped writing scripts.
