Come one, come all, to a Read, Sign & Sell event sponsored by Sierra Writers. It will take place at The Open Book, 671 Maltman Drive, Grass Valley, on Wednesday, March 13, 2019. Six local writers will each have 10 minutes to read or talk about their book(s), followed by a 5-minute question-and-answer period. Afterward, there’ll be plenty of time for attendees to browse and visit with the authors and each other. This is a free event, open to the public. I look forward to seeing you there.

Patricia Murphy Minch, author of The Luckiest Guerrilla: A True Tale of Love, War and the Army.

Patricia Minch

Author: Patricia Minch, Writer, etc. Growing up an “Army Brat,” by age eighteen I had lived in nineteen different homes in half a dozen states, Europe, and the Far East, and had traveled extensively beyond those. A National Merit Scholarship finalist in 1958, I attended the University of Texas, El Paso, and the University of California, Berkeley. Years later, I took additional courses at Cabrillo College in Aptos, California, and then spent thirteen years as a self-employed editor for court reporters. An avid writer, genealogist, gardener, landscape designer, amateur architect, woodworker, and antiques collector/dealer, I am also wife, mother, and grandmother. I’ve written feature articles for local newspapers and recently completed my first book, a narrative non-fiction account of my father's experiences as a guerrilla in North Luzon (Philippines) during WWII. I currently live with my husband, a retired college instructor and Air Force veteran, in Northern California.
