PATRICIA BREZYNSKIE
BIOGRAPHY
    Throughout youthful years of growing up in Elmira, Ontario, the backdrop for 'The Sidewalk', Patricia Brezynskie always felt that self expressed talent was in drawing and painting and not within the discipline of writing. Although writing the occasional short story or poem, free time was usually occupied utilizing the pencil for drawing rather than writing. Visitors to the family home were often gifted with a pencil portrait upon leaving. Patricia studied oil painting under renowned local artist Cole Bowman, dabbled with other mediums at the Doon School of Fine Art, and completed an art correspondence course.  Especially enjoying fashion design, often designing and making clothing, including her own wedding dress.
    However, forever lingering in the back of Pat’s mind was an urge to tackle a full length novel, something her mother would call, 'an itch that needed to be scratched', though felt that she did not have the patience to sit still for an extended length of time to write. Coming up with a story line also presented a problem. Then one day, while in Elmira to run errands for an aging mother and walking along the old sidewalks, walked on as a child, memories flooded back and instantly Patricia knew exactly what to write about, 'a sidewalk with a secret buried beneath'. After that thought a plot fell into place and the story seemed to write itself. Pat surprised herself by completing the year-long project of writing and a new interest was born. Once the novel was edited and ready for print it seemed only natural to also illustrate the cover for the novel. Following completion of 'The Sidewalk' she immediately carried on with a follow-up novel which is currently in the works. 'The Letter' continues the story with a new insightful twist.
    Patricia resides with her husband of 45 years on a two acre country property in Dufferin County. She enjoys mounting creative activities involving decorating, gardening, and landscape design. Pat especially loves spending time with their five grandchildren who visit regularly.

THE SIDEWALK
Patricia Brez
ISBN 978-1-894650-62-5 Book 228 pg. (8 ½ X 5 ½)

Fiction, life adventure.
    Old sidewalks have always interested me.  Visit any old town, perhaps the town where you grew up and have not been back to in quite some time.  Take a walk down the side streets, lined with big old houses and stately trees.  Walk along weathered sidewalks with cracks and weeds poking through here and there.  Think about all of the lives that have come and gone within those old houses, and have walked on those old sidewalks in days long past.  What stories could these sidewalks tell if able to speak?  What secrets do they hold about the people who once walked upon them?  Here and there, what secrets are still hiding beneath?
    I have visited this old town, the town where I grew up and still visit occasionally. Have taken a walk down the side streets, lined with big old houses and stately trees.  Walked along weathered sidewalks viewing the cracks and weeds poking through here and there.  Thinking about all of the lives that have come and gone within those old houses, I have walked in the memories of those human souls in days long past. These stories the sidewalks have revealed to me, secrets untold. Continuing stories I may reveal.
    Quotes:
    Quite a family tale that is rich and yet sadly plausible.
    Sometimes the most fascinating events in life happen to the average of people and I wonder why so much has happened to a single person.
    I can easily associate with Lizzy and her sadness, conflicts and struggles to survive, an inspiration to women of the times. Young girls today should read this story.
