About Me

All About Pat:

After doing her time as a free-lance writer, editor, and puzzle-maker, Pat started her own company, Mega-Books, which produced Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, The Bobbsey Twins, and lots of other series.

Before Mega, Pat was a teacher of young, impressionable children, produced Lucky Day, a syndicated newspaper feature for children, edited The Electric Company Magazine for Children’s Television Workshop, and created Muppet Magazine for Jim Henson. She wrote comics for King Features and Western Publishing. Her own books include The Official Kids’ Survival Kit; When We Were Young: An Album of Stars; and Big Digs for the John Deere company.

Her latest, I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M NOT BITTER the book, is available on Amazon.

After all that, she finally figured out what she wanted to be when she grew up . . . a humor columnist! No more teaching, no more books, no more client’s dirty looks . . . just the opportunity to tell her stories, in her own slightly off-center way.

Pat is also President (and Founder) of the Institute for the Very, Very Silly.

Thanks to everyone for helping to put this blog together (You think it was easy?),and to Marc Nadel for his wonderful (as usual) caricature.
