Said Pat’s longtime Editor Nan Talese who spoke on a panel with the others at one of the many events held at the University of South Carolina Beaufort Center for the Arts, “Editors can only suggest—writers write the magic. We encourage them to be brave and write characters with integrity and detail.” Adding, “There is a very beautiful flow of language in all of Pat’s work”.
