Patricia Dick taught English and literature in several school systems, and during that time, she published articles in educational journals. She was named a participant in the Missouri Writing Project based at the University of Missouri, Columbia. As co-owner of a tour company, she next wrote promotional travel literature until she decided to devote herself to writing fiction. Patricia, an honor student at Albion College, was designated a member of Mortar Board and Phi Beta Kappa. She earned a Masters degree in English at the University of Southern Illinois. She was later named The Professional Woman of the Year in her then-hometown, Florissant, Missouri; an Albion College Distinguished Alumni; and most recently, an Ageless--Remarkable St. Louisan by the St. Andrew's Society of St Louis. Mrs. Dick, a native of Michigan, now lives in a seniors' residential community in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri.Review:
In "Sap And Green People," Pat Dick welcomes you to a lifestyle you may be anticipating, dreading, or simply contemplating--the seniors' living community. She introduces you to a lively mix of people with varied attitudes, experiences, and outlooks. You will be warmed often, saddened occasionally, but mostly rejuvenated with the affirmation of life and its possibilities shown by her characters. This book will give seniors hope and others understanding of another generation and perhaps a time to anticipate without trepidation. Accept her invitation--you will not be disappointed. --Ms. Carol Calloni, English teacher, McCluer North High School
