About the author

Patricia Bortz

PATRICIA BORTZ was born and raised in Ohio, having graduated from Miami University. She spent the next 35 years in New York where, in her spare time, she wrote for and directed a Christian drama team, taught Sunday school and led a women’s Bible study. She has often been a speaker for Stonecroft, a worldwide Christian women's organization. In addition, she has founded Women Helping Women, a local Christian ministry. Her writing contributions span a variety of genres including skits and plays.

Patricia travels the world with her husband, where she meets interesting people, explores diverse settings and experiences distinctive cultures for her writing inspiration. She has retired from hectic, fast-paced New York and has settled in peaceful, lakeside Virginia. Every evening she relaxes with her husband’s—yes, her husband’s—gourmet cooking, a fine glass of wine and a spectacular sunset over the water.

Patricia has been an avid reader since early childhood. Her love for reading has developed into a love for writing. Her passion is to praise the Lord through all her works.
