Patty Blount writes instruction guides by day and novels by night. On a dare by her oldest son, she wrote her first novel in an ice rink. Though never published, Penalty Killer was the subject of so many seventh grade book reports, the English teacher requested a copy and later returned it, covered in red ink. Patty is always looking for great story ideas. Her debut novel, Send, was conceived after her boss suggested she learn about social networks. Patty lives on Long Island with her family, a fish, and lots of books.

    1. I am sticking with this as my final bid since auction should end with time stamp. Hope I won. If not, congrats to you, Lori.

    2. Fun game of beating the computer clock. Maybe multiple at 12pm = tie? Tricky here! If you won, congrats Amy!

    3. Unsure as the first page of details about the auction indicate it's the time stamp of 11:59 that wins. We'll see I guess! @_lagold
