Goddess book, front cover


New"This Goddess book offers a balm to the soul ... and comes at a time when healing the wounds of our hearts is so very needed.

"It would be a special gift to anyone you'd like to support with a reflection of their inner light."

~ Quiana Grace Frost, Energy Medicine Practitioner

"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 might 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 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

NEW"There's something magical that happens when folks pick up this book. It transports them back to another time when everything seemed possible. You can see the forgotten goddess being remembered.

The artwork is mesmerizing.
Our customers comment on the illustrations as much as they do the text.

People buy this book for their granddaughters, adult daughters, younger women they know and, most importantly, for themselves!"

~  Phoenix and Gwion, Co-owners of Milk & Honey, Store in Sebastopol California

“There is so much of what I call practical magic in this lovely 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, Writer

"An instant classic."
~ Russell Kellner

The Goddess book also had an amazing journey inside a woman's jail.

A pen pal on the outside gave The Goddess as a gift to a female inmate (via the jail library, because it's a hardcover book).

A short time later, the inmate wrote back.

"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. This affirms for me the deep healing sweetness of this book -- and inspires me to share it further in places where people need healing.
