Local Author Spotlight! Pat Smith

Monday, March 20, 2023

A little girl from Levelland, Texas was supposed to grow up, get married, and live happily ever after. At least, that's what her mother wanted for her. "Roots & Branches" shares twists and turns and even miracles experienced by author Pat Smith, who learned not to believe in fairytales but to trust God to create her own.

Books in the DeSoto Public Library local author collection include: Roots & Branches (2022) 

Copies will be available at the event for purchase and autographing.


Pat Smith lives in Lancaster, Texas and her one guilty pleasure is thrift store shopping for REAL bargains! 

She is also a high school dropout who eventually earned three degrees. Her Masters degree is in Business and Human Relations. Pat is a retired faculty member and Rehabilitation Specialist from Cedar Valley College.

Besides being an educator, Pat is an artist. She loves all colors and finds inspiration everywhere. Pat paints, sculpts, and creates art of all kinds. She is an active member of the Ellis County Art Association, and she gives art classes and sells her work through The Art on The Square Gallery in Waxahachie.
