Random Writing Quote:

“It has often been said / there’s so much to be read, / you never can cram / all those words in your head.

So the writer who breeds / more words than he needs / is making a chore / for the reader who reads.

That's why my belief is / the briefer the brief is, / the greater the sigh / of the reader's relief is.

And that's why your books / have such power and strength. / You publish with shorth! / (Shorth is better than length.)”

--Dr. Seuss

     Pat Jackson-Colando had a thriving speech-language pathology practice for 25 years. Publicly she introduced herself with the slogan: “If you can say my name, you don’t need to see me”, knowing that her name and job title were twists of the tongue.

     Last summer, in a real life plot twist, she became a published author, PJ Colando, with her debut novel, STASHES. It is Americana humor, satiric, filmic fiction; a farce, but real life. The logline is “Baby Boomer parents gallivant around the country in a Winnebago, leaving the family farm in the hands of their immature son and conniving wife. What could go wrong?”

     PJ’s short stories and personal essays have been published in ‘The Adelphean’, ‘ASHA Leader’, ‘Erma Bombeck Humor Writers’, ‘IUPUI Letters’, ‘Not Born Yesterday’, ‘The Lutheran Message’, and ‘Orange Coast’ magazines. Her written work has also been anthologized in Open to Interpretation, The Biscuit, She Writes, and Wisdom Has a Voice: Every Daughter’s Memories of Mother.

     A podcast about STASHES and the expanding trend for Americans to road trip and/or live full-time in RVs is available on The Boomers Ultimate Guide. PJ blogs regularly on her author site: pjcolando.com.

     She is having a blast!
