Patry Francis Blog Day

Today I'm joining over 300 other bloggers in celebrating the release of Patry's book THE LIAR'S DIARY.

I was moved by Patry's amazing story of hard work and dedication to her family and in those few moments that are rare in any busy family that she was able to pursue her dream of writing a book. When the book was completed she found an agent who was able to sell the manuscript and get that book published. Then, as sometimes happens in life, fate throws you a curve. Upon seeing her book being published, Patry was diagnosed with an aggresive form of cancer.

I'm proud of the writing community to rally around such a wonderful project, to support a new author pursuing her dream and fighting valiantly to beat back a terrible illness.

Over at Lit Park you can read the complete story. A big thanks to Laura Benedict and Karen Dionne of BackSpace for pulling this celebration together.

What can you do to help? Go out and buy Patry's book. Tell your friends about this incredible story.
