Writing Adventures for Wild Girls

My name is Pat Murphy

Maybe you expected Verla Volante? Well, life is all about things that happen when you're expecting something else.

I'm a writer.Verla Volante is a character in The Wild Girls, my most recent novel. Verla is a writing teacher. In the novel, she helps Joan and Fox (the wild girls of the title) learn about how to write and, in the process, learn a lot about how to live. 

I'm putting together this site so that people who liked the book can play a little longer in Verla Volante's world. 

You can explore this site without reading the book — but I'd recommend reading the book. I think you'll like it. But of course I think that. After all, I wrote it.
