Memoir Recounts Life of Adventures

Providence of God is woven throughout action-packed story


LONGWOOD, FL"Truth is indeed stranger than fiction, and all the more so when it reads like a storybook chronicling an amazing journey. What Ever Happened to Ratsy Patsy? ($14.99, paperback, 9781612154459; $22.99, hardcover, 9781612154848) by Patricia Thomas is a collection of true happenings in the lives of the author, her husband, her children, and their children. Some of these stories are actually life-and-death situations from which God spared those involved. Others are heartrending, or so action-packed they are like watching a thriller on television. Best of all, some will simply make you laugh and smile.

Born in the Great Depression, Thomas believes reading enriches life beyond measure, and she’s been reading, writing, or acting out stories since childhood. ?"Having this book published will hopefully being enlightenment, understanding, and appreciation for all God does for His children to those who read it,” says Thomas, who at 74 still works full-time. ?"If you read the story of the man who tried to murder me when I was 8 or 9, and how God helped me plan a way to avoid him, you will consider that quite an accomplishment"quite an experience.”

Patricia Thomas’ love of reading and writing began in school and continues to this day. When she was a reading aide a number of years ago at a local grade school teaching second and third graders, she wrote several stories for the children. She and the students also wrote a fun Christmas play with each child having a part using hand puppets. The play received rave reviews, including accolades from the principal. Thomas’ favorite pastime is, of course, reading. She and her family live in California.
