Patricia Taylor Wells

Patricia Taylor Wells

Patricia Taylor Wells published her first book in 2016: “Camp Tyler, A First of its Kind” for the benefit of Camp Tyler, the oldest outdoor education school in the country, which she attended as a child. Most of Ms. Wells’ writing has been directed at serving organizations and causes important to her. As a result, she was selected to write the first article for the newly created Authors Among Us column in Tyler Today Magazine (June/July 2016). She also published two poems, a short story and a narrative non-fiction article in the 2016 East Texas Writers Guild Anthology.

She published her first novel, “The Eyes of the Doe,” in 2017. Prior to publication, the first chapter placed as a finalist in the 2016 First Chapter Competition for Historical Fiction sponsored by East Texas Writers Guild. Her article about the novel was featured in Tyler Today Magazine (October/November 2017). In March 2018, her memoir “Mademoiselle Renoir à Paris” will be released by Bedazzled Ink Publishing.

Ms. Wells, who holds a BA in English and French, facilitated writing critique groups for the Atlanta Writers Club and Knoxville Writers Group. She especially enjoys writing poetry and draws inspiration from the wide range of experience she gathered from her travels and living in a variety of places. She currently lives in Tyler, Texas with her husband Bob and their dog Kaspar.

By the time Patricia Taylor Wells arrived in Paris to study at the Sorbonne during the summer of 1968, the political unrest in May that almost collapsed the French government had been subdued. Or so she thought. On the 50th Anniversary of the May 1968 revolt, Patricia takes us on a tour of Paris during that summer of unrest and recounts how she adjusted to living in a foreign country for the first time, from staying in a dorm run by nuns to getting caught in the student-led resurgence on Bastille Day.

“Ever since the day she was born, she could aggravate me one moment, then leave me feeling ashamed for not being a better mother the very next. She simply wants more and needs more than I ever have to give her.”

In 1963, Holly Hendricks and her family moved from the small East Texas town where they have strong family roots to the impersonal city of Dallas. Against a backdrop of local and worldwide turbulence, their once close ties are fragmented. With her mother not coming to terms with losing a son and the father having a breakdown, fourteen-year-old Holly returns to the small town to stay with her Grandma as she tries to cope with the loss of her brother.
