Pat Schmatz's picture

Pat Schmatz



Pat grew up in rural Wisconsin and has lived in Michigan, California, and Minnesota. In addition to writing, she's interested in language study (ASL, Italian, Japanese and Spanish), drawing/cartooning, travel and anything outdoors. She occasionally teaches writing on-line and in person, and is always happy for a chance to visit a middle school or high school classroom. Her #1 favorite hobby, relaxation and adventure has been the same since she was little - stories. Stories in books, music, art, dance - it's all about the story.
