Patricia Manly lives in sunny California with her mother. She is inspired daily by sunsets, sandy beaches, experiencing different ethnic foods, spending time with friends and researching holistic medicine. This is her first novel.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Besides work, I spend most of my time researching holistic medicine and how to heal the body. When I'm not researching, I love to be anywhere with nature, especially the beach with family and friends.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
This is actually my first book. I'm still in awe, because I never even thought of writing a book until I started journaling in 2007 when my dad developed Alzheimer's. I'm now writing three more books called "Non Existent", "Panic Chains" and Sisterhood of The Traveling Hormones" which will be out sometime this year.
If you were visited by a "man" from the other side warning you to change your ways, would you deny him? That is exactly what my dad, ex-power lifter George Manly faced for three nights in a row and the decision he made changed his life forever.
