About the Author

Pat Morrell-Donnelly has been writing poems for over forty eight years. Most of her education came from the “School of Hard Knocks.”

Born in Texas and raised during the 1930s’ depression era she and her family had little in the way of material things. Pat’s family moved to California when she was fourteen. She immediately found a job working four hours a day and Saturdays, attending school four hours.

Later, after working at various jobs, and modeling in San Francisco, Oakland, and Los Angeles, she worked over fifty-one years in real estate. she was able to acquire 28 rental units out of hard work and knowledge. However, in the early nineties, because of the real estate down turn in California, she lost it all. At that point in her life it was too late to “make it over again.” Through all the adversities and challenges her faith kept her going.
