Patricia Spork (a.k.a. Sporkette) is a freelance writer and digital photo artist residing in northeast Texas. Some of her works (poems, articles, short stories, one-act plays, photographs, digital photo art, books and e-books) have been published either locally, regionally, nationally or Internationally, online or in print, and some works have won awards. She has been a secretary and newsletter publisher for a songwriter’s organization, a newsletter publisher for a church, a columnist for an online writer’s site, and a book reviewer for two online book review sites. Patricia’s also been a waitress, nurse’s aid, caregiver, house cleaner, inventory control specialist, work order processor, quality assurance inspector, emergency medical technician (intermediate) and a drummer in a band. These days, she enjoys playing guitar and mandolin for personal pleasure.
Occasionally, Patricia desktop publishes various projects for others and herself. At one time, she enjoyed interviewing authors, musicians and other artistic individuals, always granting the artists permission to use the interviews for marketing and promotional purposes. Sorry, but she no longer does interviews or book reviews.
Patricia’s current interest is beading jewelry and selling products at local flea markets and events, and online at patriciaspork.com. Sometimes, she creates ACEO [Artist Cards, Editions and Originals] from her digital photo art, illustrations and paintings, and self-publishes e-books. Some of her e-books are totally original, while others are derived from one or more public domain works embellished with her artistic touch, adding new life to old. At this time, her older e-books are no longer available onsite, except for the one mentioned further below. Her two soft-cover print books are now out-of-print, by her choice. In the future, Patricia may revive some of the old works and offer new.
Comic books, vinyl records, post cards and postage stamps are some of Patricia’s “collector fetishes”. She also seems to collect animals…not as a hobby, but just because she can’t let strays be strays or say “no” when someone else asks her to take an animal. Right now, she has three horses and seven dogs.
Patricia lost her precious son to depression and suicide [Read Son For All Seasons - free download]. Her savvy daughter is a Registered Nurse. Her three grandchildren are wacky and lovable. Her supportive husband survived her menopause stage (so did she). Because back pain causes physical limitations, Patricia is more home-bound than not…of which, she’s grown more accustomed to…begrudgingly.
Artistic endeavors keep Patricia positive in life. She’s naturally natural, with a rebellious nature and Type “A” attitude. But all that aside, she’s a pretty good ‘ol gal – take her word for it. (Yah, right!)
