Gardens are Patti Hill's bread and butter, literally. Her husband, Dennis, owns a garden center in Colorado where gardens are beautiful even in winter. Just like the main character of her books, Patti's garden is in a constant state of flux. "There's always room for one more flower," is her gardening motto, and she breaks for all botanical gardens. Her first novel Like a Watered Garden, part of the Garden Gates series, was a 2006 Christy Award finalist. Patti's newest is Goodness & Mercy. Find her home on the Web at www.pattihillauthor.com.
