Sunday Spotlight: WR101 – Patricia Josephine

sunday spotlightI’m a little late with my Sunday Spotlight, at least in UK time. But it’s still Sunday in other parts of the world so that counts, right? Right.

This week at Writing Room 101 I shared Patricia Josephine’s latest release – Gabriel, which is book four in the Path of Angels series. I also shared a review of Gabriel.

PatriciaLynneAuthorPicPatricia Josephine never set out to become a writer. In fact, she never considered it an option during high school and college. She was all about art. On a whim, she wrote down a story bouncing in her head. That was the start of it and she hasn’t regretted a moment. She writes young adult under the name Patricia Lynne.

Patricia lives with her husband in Michigan, hopes one day to have what will resemble a small petting zoo, has a fondness for dying her hair the colors of the rainbow, and an obsession with Doctor Who.






Path of Angels:

GabrielPoACoverThe end is in sight.

To stop Uriel from freeing Lucifer, Gabriel and his brothers must fall and go to Hell. It is a sacrifice Gabriel is not entirely ready to make. Will he fight alongside his brothers or forge his own path? There is only one choice.

Alexander doesn’t want to help Uriel nor does he trust him, but the angel has promised him a better life. He swore to protect Charlie, and he’ll do whatever it takes. When he meets the archangels and learns the depth of Uriel’s lies, he understands the true meaning of sacrifice. If there’s any hope of stopping Lucifer from being freed, Alexander, Charlie, Zephyr and Lake will have to get to Hell and help Gabriel and his brothers in the fight against Uriel.

The path is finally ending, but the price may be too high.

Also on WR101 this week, you will find a cover reveal of Alicia by Gloria Weber.

As this post is about spotlighting, it’s not too much of a divergence to shine a light on the winners of the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards 2015. I met some wonderful people on Saturday, and thoroughly enjoyed the day. I was nervous when I arrived,  but Sacha, the organiser of this fabulous event, gave me a big hug and I immediately felt at home. I’d already discussed my anxiety with Hugh, who took me under his wing – that’s the kind of man he is; warm, welcoming and generous with his time. He has a wonderful sense of humour, and together he and Geoff made me completely forget the nerves. It really was lovely to meet Suzie, Helen, Lucy, Marje, Esther, and Sue. So many wonderful people; my only regret is that I didn’t get the chance to completely catch up with everyone. I did get the opportunity to meet Conny in person, who I’ve shared many a chat with over at Weekend Coffee Share, which was a lovely treat.

So, check out Sacha’s blog, and her terrific committee members; Hugh, Geoff and Ali.

Here are the awards and the winners:

Services to Bloggers – Suzie Speaks

Funniest Blogger – Lucy (Blonde Write More)

Inspirational Blogger – Suzie Speaks

Informative Blogger – Sarah Hardy (By the Letter Book Reviews)

Best Dressed – Concierge Librarian

Best Overall Blog – Chris Graham (aka The Story Reading Ape)

Congratulations to all the winners.

Thanks for stopping by.




It was a great day, wasn’t it? Everyone was so welcoming it made it easy to join the group. Glad you enjoyed it and it was lovely meeting you xx

Hi Mel; delightful to meet you and share a rather jolly Saturday together. It is rather encouraging, isn’t it, that the people who sound so nice on their blogs turn out to be just that in person…

I can relate to how Patricia Josephine began her writing experience. I, too, began with art. Her book sounds intriguing! Thank you for sharing, Melissa, and have a grand day!


I'd love to hear from you.
