Patricia Renard Scholes-4 I live in a mountain valley in western Colorado (USA). My husband of over fifty years and I love this little corner of the world. We have experienced several “dystopian” events, such as starvation when there was no work, and all the money needed to go to rent; a tornado that left us homeless; a series of financial misadventures that left us homeless again, where we lived in the mountains in the snow because the homeless shelters at that time did not accept families; and recently a forest fire that threatened our home.
We are survivors. There is little the world can throw at us that we cannot weather. We depend completely on the Lord to see us through, and he has never let us down.
Many people have gone through devastating events in their lives. So do my heroines. I put them in a potentially unsurvivable situation, and watch them see it through. So can you, my fellow Dystopians.

If you would like to contact me, please feel free. I respond to all emails.
