The Ice Road Poems, edited by Phil Linz, Fierce Grace Press, 2007

Patricia has featured at numerous venues including Unnameable Books, the Zinc Bar, The Parkside Lounge, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, the Telephone Bar, KGB Bar, the Galapagos Art Space, The Huntington Poetry Barn (Huntington, NY), The Colony Arts Center (Woodstock, NY), Robin's Bookstore (Philadelphia, PA), Poets and Angels Reading Series (East Brunswick, NJ), The Carrozini von Buhler Gallery, the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, The Cornelia Street Cafe, the Phoenix Reading Series, the Bowery Poetry Club, A Gathering of the Tribes, Bluestockings Bookstore, the Saturn Series, the Moroccan Star, Stark!!! and the Back Fence.

In 2006, Christine Leahy from the Park Slope Reader interviewed her. In 2008, she was interviewed by Louis Reyes Rivera on WBAI's Perspective on September 3 with Juanita Torrence-Thompson and Vivian Warfield. Patricia and several of her "Brownstoners" (Evie Ivy, Linda Lerner, Obsidian, Richard Fein and Peter Chelnik accompanied by saxiphonist Bob Feldman) were interviewed on Anne Cammon Fiero's Studio A Radio Series - WKCR 89.9 FM - Columbia University, which aired on December 13, 2009. Patricia was part of David Morneau's Love Songs CD in 2013, along with Austin Alexis, Iris Berman,Ana Bozicevic, Anne Fiero, George Held, Cindy Hochman, Roxanne Hoffman, Evie Ivy, and Susan Maurer. In 2013, she was one of the 3 muses in David Francis' indie flick, Village Folksinger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njU2DWEEu5I.

Since 2005, She hosts and curates the Brooklyn-based Brownstone Poets, formally the Park Slope Poetry Society, at the Park Plaza Restaurant in Brooklyn Heights and is the editor-in chief of the annual Brownstone Poets Anthology. She was one of the hosts for the SOS ABC NO RIO Sunday Open Series on the Lower East Side. She is proud resident of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.

For Patricia, poetry allows the imagination to guide the hand in writing down the voice from within. Poetry is a safe flight into her darkest moments and other forbidden territories with her at the controls. By using words on paper, they become puppets. Through these puppets, she can express any deep-rooted fear or desire without submitting herself to embarrassing conversation. She prefers to get things down on paper as a catharsis for the soul. These emotions and ideas, whether they are dark or light are beautified and the afterimages that they produce are rewarding and up-lifting. Please share her experience and take a journey to where the intelligence of the heart can contemplate the complexities of the mind.
