Patricia Sands lives in Toronto, Canada and has degrees from the University of Waterloo and York University. With a happily blended family of seven adult children and, at last count, six grandchildren, life is full and time is short. Beginning with her first Kodak Brownie camera at the age of six, she has told stories all of her life through photography. Much to her surprise a few years ago, she began to write. Her debut novel The Bridge Club was published through iUniverse in September 2010. Currently at work on her second novel, Patricia admits the writing muse has possessed her. She is particularly drawn to the rewarding friendships of women and the challenges many embrace once their families are grown. "It's never too late to begin something new," she enthuses. "As the saying goes, just do it!"
Patricia and her husband will be living in Antibes, France until September 30th. Her camera will be her constant companion when she isn't working on her second novel, part of which will be set in the area. If you have any travel questions about the area, she will be delighted to try and answer them as she knows it well. She will be blogging about the experience too.
