Pat Martin-Rossi is a mother, daughter, sister, cousin, niece and friend who can be found sharing her poetry in venues throughout RI, MA, and anywhere she travels. Writing is her refuge.

She has two novels started and is editing old poems and writing new work to put in a book of poetry she hopes to publish soon. She accepts the struggles and adversity that life offers and uses them as inspiration. Her writing is a reflection of her experiences;good and bad. She has one chapbook, My Soul Exposed a Collection of Poems by Patricia A. Martin-Rossi, an excellent example of the rawness and honesty in her writing.
