She has (in a way) bequeathed to us the most carefully made ebook editions I've ever seen. They are better proofed than most of the books released by major publishers, and -- here's the important thing -- it is a pleasure to feel I'm getting to know two people at a time every time I open one: the author and Patricia herself.

If only I'd been able to get to know her personally while she was doing all this! I vow to spend part of Sunday reading her posts. I need to hear the voice of the discerning and humble person who gave us these treasures.
That's a lovely post, and heartwarming to know that Patricia still impresses herself on people so. As you see more of her posts I think you'll find her exactly as you describe.

Thank-you.

Cheers,
Marc
