Like a River Flowing is the definitive in-your-face, coming of age novel. Set in a small town in 1959, it follows Izzy Collins through the summer of her twelfth year as she discovers the community she had always regarded as warm and safe and loving has a number of surprises waiting for her. With equal parts of pathos and humor, the author takes you on a journey back to a time and place on the Oregon coast where life was viewed from a different perspective, where the battle between light and dark, good and evil rages as it has for all eternity: just below the surface. When Izzy's classmate goes missing, it is just the beginning.

About the Author:

Patricia lives with her husband Keith on their 2,500 acre ranch in southeast Oregon. She is the author of the "Twist" short story trilogy and "Food For Thought" a collection that combines short fiction and recipes inspired by the tales themselves. Her most recent endeavor is "Like A River Flowing", a novel set during the summer of 1959. If asked Patricia will tell you many of her ideas come zipping in from left field. That would be the field where she and her rancher husband feed cows each morning. Often she will walk back to the barn to get her daily exercise and the speed at which she walks is determined by how good the story idea is. The goal is to get back and jot down some notes before the thought vanishes. She has many scraps of paper, restaurant receipts, backs of envelopes, all of which attest to the fact that she never knows where or when a plot or character or storyline will surface.
