First of all, Patricia has a little difficultly talking about herself in the third person. It makes her sound like Bob Dole.
Secondly, Patricia has loved reading comics for as long as she can remember. So she thought she'd give it a shot in telling a story of her own.
Thirdly, and probably the most important, is she loves feedback. Just don't be too harsh with her, being artists can be fragile creatures.
Lastly, she doesn't take bribes, but can be influenced with fan art and chocolate covered pretzels. Tossing money her way wouldn't hurt either.
