Patricia Dreyfus
 



     Patricia is an award winning poet and freelance writer. She is too old to be eulogized as, "So young and so gifted."

     She was raised in Compton, California, and is "of "California. Don't mention what has happened in the "Golden State" in the last 25 years because she goes on about it.

     She is the best argument for gun control laws you will ever meet, because if she had her pearl handled derringer in her purse, some people would be in danger.

    She spent many years in the laundry room and kitchen in the contemplation of socks and spaghetti. Patricia has raised 5 outstanding children, who in turn have given her 11 perfect grand children, who call her "Bubbles."

     She has traveled extensively, has experienced the joys and sorrows of many cultures and loves to share her travel tales. She speaks very poor Spanish, and lives in  California with her first and favorite husband, Gary.
