Southern Writers Magazine ran an interview on Patricia written by Annette Cole Mastron titled Potter’s Gold. I believe she does have that ‘Midas Touch’. One of the things I admire about Patricia is she is always willing to advise other writers when asked. One of the best pieces of advice she has given is “To succeed as a writer, one should be well read.”SW Cover July test 2



The Soldier’s  Promise is her latest book. It’s about when a former army ranger Josh Manning comes to close-knit Covenant Falls, he knows he won’t be staying long. As soon as he’s renovated the cabin he’s inherited from a late fellow soldier, he and his ex-military dog, Amos, are getting out fast. That is, until Mayor Eve Douglas drops by.

Eve, a young widow, has a precocious son and a band of misfit pets. Definitely not his type. Besides, she deserves much more than he can give. Unless, against all his instincts, he’s ready to make one more promise.

This story idea evolved from a New York Times story about military dogs.

Be sure and get Patricia Potter’s books, they are well worth reading.
