This site is the creative home of P.A. (Patti) Moed, an award-winning writer and aspiring photographer. In this blog, she will share her ideas, photographs, and insights about the creative process. She will also provide resources for people who are on their own journey through the vast seas of creation and imagination.
Patti’s rebellious and restless spirit was fostered during her childhood on Long Island, where she endured parochial school and meals featuring Jello and Spam. Finding liberation through higher education, wandering the globe, and writing, she has lived in 6 different states and at last count has moved 17 times. Her careers are equally far-ranging–university professor, freelance writer, textbook editor, photographer, fearless culinary adventurer, corporate trainer, and instructional designer.
A passionate advocate for the underdog, she finds inspiration in places where the personal and political meet. Her novel, The Incident in Montebello, is based on an actual international event in 1930, when dictator Benito Mussolini, who was touring Italy with American millionaire Cornelius Vanderbilt Jr., ran over and killed a little girl. Her novel focuses on the girl’s parents, torn apart by their child’s death and conflicting political loyalties. It is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the Apple Store, and Smashwords.
She currently lives in the Midwest with her husband and her son and is available for workshops and lectures. To contact her, email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
