Biography of Patricia
Self Published Author, Patricia A. Saunders was born and
raised in Connecticut before relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area nearly 25
years ago. She received her Master’s in Management from the University of
Phoenix in 2011. After the passing of her mother who had Alzheimer’s, Patricia
decided that all the words that she kept to herself were to be released.
Her work has been featured on a Coast to Coast Book Tour at
the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, Toronto Word On The Street, Sacramento
Black Book Fair, Tucson Book Festival, Miami International Festival of Books
and AARP Life@50+ Spring Convention. Also on In the Company of Poet, Women

She is a monthly blogger of her own blog Blessed & Curvy
who covers today’s hot topics.
She released her first self published book Through
the Fire (March 2012) which covered emotions from situations,
circumstances, and life lessons that have influenced her over her lifetime. On
a mission to complete a book a year in case she inherits the ugly disease she
released her second book Loving Me (2013) and third Let
It Rain (2014) which is also self published and covers various topics
from love, grief, self image, self esteem, bullying, and discovery of self love
.Her fourth book (2016) This Too Shall Pass was released by
AuthorHouse Publishing and readers have given it a five star rating. The book
was inspired from three note cards she received after the passing of her mother
when she felt like giving up on life, on the brink of losing her home and being
unemployed that encouraged her to live for those who loved her. Her very latest
book by Book Baby Publishing (2017) There Is Sunshine After The Rain a
non-fiction novel that includes poetry is birthed after the tenth anniversary
of her Mother’s passing, the reality that with every lesson that she has
experienced through life that there is a reason, there are tests that all are
faced with, but it’s how you respond. Saunders chose poetry and nonfiction to
let the readers know the thought process behind the poetry, tools to help
others who may face the same circumstances, and it builds a relationship
further between the author and those reading her words.
In her spare time, Patricia enjoys writing poetry,
traveling, spending time with family and wine tasting.
