About Pat Sawtelle
Pat Sawtelle says she began writing in August of 2008 simply to make her mind shut up. After filling two spiral notebooks and with dreams still flowing, she decided she needed a laptop. This story wasn't stopping.
Friends and family tolerated her writing insanity, occasionally asking when they could read them. Bashful about her writing ability and the storyline, Pat politely brushed them off. Several years into the story she finally allowed four friends to read book one. With feedback from these friends, she made changes to that book while continuing to write more.
Stumbling across an old friend who was running a mid-sized speculative publishing company (Dark Oak Press), he offered to provide feedback on a few pages. With his feedback, she continued to tidy up the first book while the story continued to flow into more words and books. After 5 1/2 years announced she'd completed the first draft of the15 books in the Chalice Princess series.
Her friends were excited with the announcement and encouraged Pat to get them published so they could finally read them. Pat contacted her friend Dark Oak Press, to explore ways to share her stories. After reviewing her options, she asked him to help and in November 2016 they released Chalice Moon.
Distracted by life and family, Pat took time away from the Chalice Princess Series to write the two Adulting Doesn't Have To Suck! books her children and their friends wanted. They said she had lots of tips to help them and needed to share them. In addition to writing those, she participated in the Dark Oak Press and Media, It's All About Writing speaking events they recorded and put on YouTube. In late 2021 Adulting Doesn't Have To Suck! and Adulting Doesn't Have To Suck! #2 were published allowing Pat to return to her work on the Chalice Princess series.
Could this simple human girl be the legendary Chalice mentioned in that old tale they found? The story said the Chalice is bound to the delicate balance between the forces of good and evil. While the part of taking from evil and giving to good didn’t sound too bad to Kimie, it never said so many people would want to see her dead.
