Patience Griffin grew
up in a small town along the Mississippi River, enjoying life in a tight-knit
community. She loves to quilt and has gained recognition with her September
11th Story Quilt, which has toured the country and is currently hanging in the
Pentagon. She has a master’s degree in nuclear engineering but spends her days
writing stories about hearth and home and dreaming about the fictional small
town of Gandiegow, Scotland.
