Patricia Alderman
Patricia is an author who celebrates the absurdity of grace. She is an introvert who craves community, a Michigander who hates being cold, and a hopelessly loud car singer who can’t carry a tune to save her life. She explores loss and grief—as it relates to infertility, miscarriage, and childlessness—and what it’s like to navigate those experiences in a world that often wants us to just get over it already. She has written for The Mudroom, Fathom Magazine, Breathe Christian Writers Conference, and Kindred Grace, among others. Patricia also solves many of the world’s problems while relaxing with a skein of yarn and a crochet hook. Connect with her at patriciaalderman.com
