About Patti


The author with her dog Tonto

I grew up in Mount Vernon, Ohio, and graduated in 1965. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Mount Vernon Nazarene University (then a college), and a Ph.D. from The Ohio State University.  After I graduated from OSU I worked for several years at Battelle Memorial Institute as a research scientist – a fancy name for a beginning level research and development employee. I  taught 18 years at Otterbein College and retired as Professor Emeritus. Currently living in Tucson, Arizona, I devote my energy to writing, bridge, and genealogy research.
