Welcome to Guthrie’s Writing Cottage for anyone who loves reading, writing and just plain life.
I’ve been writing blogs for about ten years, but not consistently. I get the bug and blog/write. I lose the bug and leave it for months, if not years. So much to do, books to write, books to edit, books to read, books to review, books to research and articles to write. (Although, I must admit rotten health and writer’s block) leaves my drive and motivation high and dry.) For those of you in any profession, you may appreciate that.
I’ve seen many websites and blogs with few updates. I think the key here is to to be consistent, keep things interesting, chose a variety of topics and edit-edit-edit. (At least I’ve been told.)
My main focus on my web/blog site for all to read and enjoy: Reading, writing, book reviews and blogs, shared articles, stories, and poems. Discover the religious calendar, although that is not my priority here–you won’t find me preachy. I occasionally enter the realm of politics, but rarely. I’m an independent thinker and hopefully, open minded in most things.
Don’t forget to look at the sidebar under “Tidbits.” You’ll find something new and either educational or entertaining almost every day.
I hope you find this web/blog enjoyable and useful

“Every experience is potential fodder for a novel.” Patricia A. Guthrie
Patricia A. Guthrie is the author of romantic suspense novels, mysteries, short stories and non-fiction articles. She resides in the Chicago area.
Guthrie’s current published novels Waterlilies Over My Grave, In the Arms of the Enemy, and Willed Accidents Happen and Short Stories of Fiction are available in online bookstores such as Amazon.com.

An accomplished musician, Guthrie sang in opera companies in Europe and the United States, has been a church solois
t and music teacher. After leaving the opera, she became a music therapist in a school for children with special needs and then went on to teach music in the Chicago Public School system.
Being an avid animal lover and advocate, she owns a horse (Dixie) and two black kitties (Archie and Crystal.) At one time, she had four collies who all knew how to line up in a row and “sit-stay.” (I have the photos to prove it.) Pat’s shown horses in Quarter Horse and local horse shows and collies in ‘obedience’ classes at dog shows.
You can find her books on Amazon.com, other online booksellers, and her publisher’s site. (www.lspdigital.com)
