Pat Walker - Northern Colorado Writer Feature


Patricia WalkerNorthern Colorado Writer's Group

I'm Patricia Walker and I've been writing for as long as I can remember. However, it didn't occur to me until six years ago—when my definition of reality turned me inside out—that writing was what I was meant to do with my life. I've since gained the courage to submit my work to public forums and now have several poems and articles published both online and in print. I've also completed my first book, which is based on my life-changing experience. I've been a member of Northern Colorado Writer's since 2008 and because of this fantastic organization, I've joined a writer's critique group and networked with many talented people. All of these have proved invaluable in helping me become a better writer.

The working title of my book is DANCE OF THE ELECTRIC HUMMINGBIRD. It's a funny, deep, and complex coming-of-age memoir that began with an out-of-body experience I had during a rock concert. This unexpected event precipitated a series of supernatural episodes which thrust me into mystical realms, that prior to this experience, I wasn't sure I believed in. It also led me to interact with rock star Sammy Hagar (formerly of Van Halen), who repeatedly encouraged me to tell this incredible story and has given me a written endorsement for my book. DANCE OF THE ELECTRIC HUMMINGBIRD is "Eat, Pray, Love" meets "The Alchemist," meets "Almost Famous" and "The Van Halen Saga." I've recently begun the search for an agent.

Thanks for the bio Pat.

The Darth Writer wishes you the best in finding an agent!
