Goddess book, front cover


"The Goddess story is beyond-words fabulous. I was totally hooked. It feels intimate to the level of the soul. I want to read it again and again.

"And then to see how the story came through you, to emerge as a true divine experience, gave me goose bumps.

"This story is more than a story to entertain. It gives insight to the core of us as divine creatures. Thank you is an understatement.

"This book is truly a gift to the world."

~ Paula Pearce, Author & Illustrator, Saving Walter

"Dear Patricia --

"I heard back from my friend who I gave your book as a gift. She said that she read it with her husband, each taking turns reading it to each other, and it made them both cry (in a good way).

"You made a difference in their lives. And they may end up buying it for someone else too.

"It made me feel good to have given it to her. This is a person who matters to me, a dear friend and co-worker. It was an impromptu purchase, not for an occasion, and I wanted it to mean something to her, not just go on a shelf.

"This book made a difference for my friend because of all your work creating it. The artwork is beautiful and flows with the story. Congratulations and thank you!"

~ Janie Frigault

"Great gift book, I've read and enjoyed it many times

"I bought this wonderful book as a birthday gift for my 14-year old daughter. It's become one of my favorite books, and I've read it many times. The wonderful illustrations are a perfect match for the story.

"As a man, it's great to read something with a goddess focus I can still relate to and enjoy."

~ James Gleaves

"I LOVED your Goddess book! And I can’t wait to share it with at least three friends who will love it!  It's a wonderful story of a journey of spirit, appropriate for all people and all ages.  Plus the artwork is lovely.  Thank you for this gift to share!"

~ Kristina Boudreaux, Organic Farmer/Parent

"The message in your Goddess book resonates strongly for me, and I'm glad to be supporting by carrying in my store. I can imagine reading it to my granddaughter.  Beautiful work. It really touched me. I had a hard time not crying!"

~ Edith Lucas, Owner of Dragon's Lair, Store in Ukiah California

“Lovely book!! There is so much of what I call practical magic in your book. The journey deep into our inner goddess' intuition knowing serves our very human condition in very real ways! I will be using it as a healing tool in my work with clients. ”

~ Susan Kistin, Marriage & Family Therapist, Co-founder Earthways

"Patricia! Your Goddess book arrived Tuesday this week, and I stopped everything and devoured it! What a sweet and beautiful book.

"It brought back a lot of the feelings I had when I was a child. I feel as if you have known me since my early childhood. 

"I know someone else who definitely needs the book. Her adult life has been a struggle with believing in herself.  And I can hardly wait until my 5 year old granddaughter is a couple of years older so that I may read it to her, and give her one to have.

"Thank you for being you, a writer and an artist, and for being the creator of this lovely loving book. It will fill the cells of so many with the love you describe."

~ M. Justine Foster

"An instant classic."
~ Russell Kellner

You might also like to read the amazing story about how The Goddess was given to a jail inmate -- and ended up being passed around among 1,400 inmates.

This shows me the deep healing sweetness of this book.

A pen pal gave The Goddess as a gift to a female inmate (via the jail library).

The inmate wrote back to her:

"I read the book twice and I love it. It is a healing book. The author did an awesome job.

"I also passed it around to the women on the pod to read; they all loved it.

"So it has already touched a lot of lives. I thank you for getting it for all of us."

About two weeks later, the inmate wrote again:

"Yes everyone loves the book. :-) It is being read all over the yard -- 1,400 inmates."

Wow, amazing.
