The lead character is Pat Canella. The story started with a man walking into a dingy office, and asking for Pat Canella.
Patti ( Pat) says “Here I am.”
The man looking astounded at this frail girl said to her “OK, joke over miss, where is he?”
“I am Pat Canella,” says Patti. “Used to say Patti, I got fed up of chasing ponies for rich kids. I know you were expecting some tough Irishman, or an Italian with a flick knife and greasy hair, sorry you got me.”
In October, checking my Twitter contacts, I saw a competition ran by the Merrill Collection.
“OK.” I said to myself “Got nothing to lose, just send the email address in.”
This I did, the competition closed, I thought nothing more of it, I am a competition junky always got three of rour on the go. Then one evening chatting to a friend, I got bleeped that an email had arrived for me from the Merrill, eagerly I opened it.
I quickly went to the trash file, luckily the story was still there. And now had a great new life infused in it.
The story that almost died, not only is my first book but on Bookrix and Facebook is creating quite a following now.
