Patti Ann Colt lives in Arlington, Texas. She enjoys having her handsome grandson underfoot and her three grown children nearby. A life-size cutout of John Wayne stands near her desk and supervises her writing. When she’s not working, she’s hanging out with assorted extended family, playing with five bed-hogging dogs, cooking something scrumdillyicious, sewing, researching genealogy, and, of course, reading – both print books and on her Kindle. You can find Patti on Facebook, Twitter or blogging at TheCleverWriter.blogspot.com.
