Patricia Wild’s full-time writing career began in 1998 when her novel, Swimming In It, was published by Flower Valley Press, Gaithersburg, MD. For many years, she had taught adult learners at the Somerville Center for Adult Learning Experiences; Swimming In it is based on the stories her homeless students had told her. A bi-monthly columnist for The Somerville Journal for ten years, she recently completed a novel based on Mary Magdalen’s story, Welling Up, and a two-act play, “Those Starving Armenians.” Her short stories have appeared in Wilderness House Literary Review, Out of the Blue Writers Unite: An Anthology and Peeks and Valleys: A New England Fiction Journal. Her poetry has been published in P&Q Press and the Ibbetson Street Press.
A Quaker, a member of Friends Meeting at Cambridge’s Prison Fellowship Committee, storyteller, Patricia lives in Somerville, Massachusetts.
