Patricia Wilhite Vermillion
I love BOOKS, my day job as a librarian, my night job or anytime job as a writer. I grew up in Mississippi and now live in Texas with my husband, three children and 7 grandchildren. I can read and write anywhere, but my favorite place is a porch swing. Porch sitting brings fond memories of the south, lemonade, sweet tea, friends, family, and a cool Mississippi breeze. I am an active member of SCBWI, AASL, AISL, and ALA.
