Author Biography

I've been retired from a 25 yr career for 7 years and was inspired to write about strong, independent women who experience vulnerabilities of the heart. This book is my 7th book & my 1st attempt at contemporary. I usually write historical romantic suspense. Having experienced the need to be a strong, independent woman myself, I wanted to show that women can also experience self-doubt when it comes to love. Ricki spoke to me and I tried to heed her call. I live in East Texas with my husband and crème lab, Cutter. Our children are grown and now I have the time to follow the passion that has burned in my heart for years. My favorite quote is from Dolly Parton, "Find out who you are, then do it on purpose." It's never too late to follow your dream. What we bring to retirement is the experience of a life time. We have a chance to encourage and inspire those that come after us. It gives me joy to follow this path and know I am able to encourage others and shine a light on the new path they find themselves on.

That One Moment is the story of Ricki and Kory. Running away from heartbreak and betrayal, Ricki has decided she wants to live off the land. Learn how to be a survivalist and forget the things that brought her to where she is today. But things don’t always go as planned, as she soon learns, and not just when it comes to men and friendship. On her very first day, Ricki nearly falls off a mountain to her death and that’s how we meet Kory. Sweet, wonderful, delicious and wounded Kory. Author Patty Wiseman does a good job of injecting so much action into just the first two pages that I had high expectations for this story.

And That One Moment does not disappoint. Kory and Ricki have to deal with instant attraction which, for two people reluctant to form those close ties again, is a bit of a problem. I love a story where both main characters want, or don’t want, the same thing, because you just know the journey is going to be good, and Patty Wiseman made sure it was a step above good. At times, Ricki could be frustrating, but the more you learn about her and the circumstances that led her to Wolf’s Den, the easier it is to sympathize with her. Not that Kory is all that innocent either; at times he let his pride get in the way of something really great. Luckily they both paid for it but good before they came to their senses. Patty Wiseman wrote a fantastic story with lots of beautiful scenery, and captivating prose that sucks the reader in until the very end.

Perfection at its best!

The characters were developed perfectly. You can sense their emotions, inner turmoil, and you can feel their flaws and that has never happened for me. Ricki is a strong woman, but due to her rocky past, she is not only afraid to trust others...she is afraid to trust her own decisions. Kory... wow, Kory...I want one of him. He has his flaws, don't get me wrong, but he is strong when he has to be and understanding/caring when he wants to be. He seemed to be just the right amount of rough around the edges for me.
This book has it all adventure, suspense, the evil creep you try to like, but as much as you try in the end you want to shoot him yourself. One thing this book doesn't have is fowl language and graphic sex scenes. IT DIDN"T NEED IT. It was pure perfection the way Patty Wiseman wrote it. I couldn't put it down. Now, everyone is going to want Wolf's and Martha's story, which I do, too. BUT I feel Kyle needs a new beginning. I have added Patty as a new author favorite and highly recommend this book for everyone. Thank you, for such a wonderful read.
