Patricia J. Gallegos is a new author. The View from My Window is her first novel.
As a published illustrator, her pen and ink illustrations capture the wildlife and the landscape of the Four Corners in Under the Indian Turquoise Sky, Ye Galleon Press. This collection of Native American fables was shared, in the oral tradition, by respected Native-elder storytellers with young Native American students, who put these treasured fables into writing for the very first time. This treasury was compiled by Dr. Grace Nutley and Rosemary R. Davey.
As a Nationally Certified Sign Language Interpreter, Gallegos is a student of human nature and the language of what is unsaid but clearly stated. As a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, she has the reputation of being the Shen whisperer, She-Who-Sees-Inside-the-Spirit. She teaches and practices Traditional Chinese Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Following her own native roots, she treads softly in the footsteps of her ancestral matriarch, who was an Apache warrior and practitioner of curanderismo.
