About the Author
Katherin FitzPatrick, or "Kathie," has been a writer, a poet and a songwriter since her early youth. Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, she migrated with her family to the magical location of the Yakima Valley Region in 1990. A warm, sun shiny valley on the other side of the Cascade mountains, about 3 hrs. east of Seattle--it has been called one of the last Shangrila's in America. It is a perfect place to write, create and dream. Kathie lives a life of high contrast, as a Realtor on some days, and then the woman in black leather on other days, working with teens in youth detention, she affectionately calls 'her kids.' Kathie FitzPatrick is a 1980's graduate of The Institute of Chilldren's Literature, Redding Ridge, CT.

Packed with the sort of wisdom parents long to pass on to their children, Fitzpatrick teaches self acceptance through a light-hearted, entertaining approach. Don't underestimate the impact, however, on all ages, as this timeless story will become relevant to everyone. If you have ever wanted to be someone else, or thought you could never do anything with your life, The Wish will gently remind you that life is a process and even though you may think you are mundane, or dull, you have the potential to become precious. In fact, you are precious. It's just a matter of realizing the journey is as important as the end result.
