Find romance at the Feb. 28 Shuswap Writers’ Coffee House.

Featured award-winning author Patricia Donahue will read from Claudia, a story based on Psyche’s journey to the underworld, about a woman’s coming of age, maturing so she is ready for authentic love.

Donahue, a Vernon resident, presented her popular Romance Workshop at Word on the Lake one year and proved that she’s a dynamo of energy, creativity and fun – and a talented writer to boot.

Donahue is the author of Mighty Orion-Fate and her latest book Mighty Orion-Secrets, set in New Brunswick.

She has taught writing at UBC-Okanagan  for four years, including summer writing camps, presented at writers’ fairs, has given workshops on a variety of writing genres, edited and sat on writing-discussion panels.

She has short stories published in Kelowna’s Event magazine, in several anthologies, and is a recent contributor to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

See her hair-raising story, Bruno’s Bruin, in the sub-titled edition, O Canada; The Wonders of Winter.

In 2012, she was the winner of the Okanagan Literary Arts Award.

There will also be time for other authors to read, so join in at Choices on Lakeshore Drive.

A light supper is offered at 5:30 p.m. with the coffee house starting at 6:30 p.m.

No cover charge, everyone welcome.
