Pat Dilloway

Pat has never climbed Mt. Everest, never fronted a rock band (or played a musical instrument), never played on a pro sports team, never dated (or even seen up close) a supermodel, never been linked to any celebrity (A, B, D-list or otherwise), never walked down a red carpet, never had anyone discuss a "baby bump," never been featured on reality TV, and never been the star of a YouTube video. However, Pat has spent many lonely evenings (early mornings and midafternoons, too!) reading and writing, and that has resulted in the publication of this novel.
