About the Book

“The Other Four-Letter Word is an inspiring true story of one woman’s incredible journey in the game of life. From childhood, Patricia’s health has been quite the curve ball. All it took was for her to find her swing and follow through. Heart tugging, motivating, and victorious, this book is a home run.” —Steve Sax, writer, motivational speaker, and professional baseball player

“Life through Patti—one of the most tortuous health curves one could ever imagine. From epilepsy through a litany of other serious challenges to her body and mind … she held the course. This book is about a woman calling on her innate quality, character, and soul to survive. And then conquer! Patti shares with an intense openness that gives the readers a highly personal insight in which others facing life challenges can find immense value. As difficult as it often is in this book to witness what Patti endured … the overriding impact is a story as warm and nurturing as a serving of her restaurant’s famous ravioli.” —Stan Atkinson, Sacramento Channel 3 (NBC), news anchor

Now, now, I know what four-letter words you are thinking of—my favorite words too! But my story is about a stronger four-letter word that can control all of our thoughts. This word cultivated and controlled a majority of my life. My goal is for you to learn how to be in charge of this four-letter word, believe in the goals of your life, and find happiness within yourself.
