About Patricia Griffin Ress
Most Recently I have written for the Acadiana Gazette of Lafayette, Louisiana, and was listed in WHOS WHO in the WORLD. I was allowed to do this from our home in Omaha where I have spoken to local organizations such as THE HENRY FOUNDATION and I'm available for speaking engagements on various topics such as: alternative healing, time-travel, UFOlogy, new scientific theories,etc. I covered such stories as Hurricane Katrina and the BP platform explosion and its consequences.My newspaper and magazine experience extends over a period of 20 years. I have worked as a med lab tech for about 8 years(usually between journalism jobs) and for about 13 years I worked in the travel/transportation industry. I did reservations for 9 years for Marriott and was an ADA-lead for Greyhound Bus Lines for 4 years. ADA= Americans With Disabilities Act and I helped disabled people plan their bus trips. Why the travel industry? I could do 30 + hours of work in three days which left me more time to work on my creative and magazine writing.
In 2006, I was a 'finalist' in the "Fresh Voices" Literary contest for my novel FOREVER IN MY HEART. I have just completed a second follow-up novel and the two of them are my St. Louis Saga series.
You have heard me on Coast to Coast AM with Steve Gibbs discussing time-travel.(My original 5 time-travel books are currently out of print) but THE LETTERS FROM INVERNESS TERRACE, is a time-travel romance. And I have since written the book WHY I BELIEVE THE HDR WORKS AND TIME-TRAVEL IS POSSIBLE!(Available through Publish America.net)
I'm an 8-time "editors choice" winner, listed in
- Americas Registry of Outstanding Professionals
- American Society of Published Authors
- Prestige International Whos Who
- International Whos Who of Writers and
- Authors of Cambridge, England
- Marquis WHOS WHO in America, WHOS WHO of American Women WHOS WHO IN THE WORLD and
- WHOS WHO in the Midwest (I have been listed in one of the above for each year since 1998).
I have also written for 45+ magazines, and was a BBC interviewee for the Dilly Barlowe special on time-travel which was filmed in New Orleans in 2003. Dr. Frank Tipler was also interviewed for this program. He is a physics professor at Tulane University.
Since 1997 I have been co-host of the Memphis,TN radio show NIGHTSEARCH. For information on this show go to: www.nightsearch.net. I have been interviewed by Daniel Ott, the late Lou Gentile, George Noory of Coast to Coast AM, Alex Merklinger of "Mysteries of the Mind", Richard Starrett of Canadian Broadcasting System in Toronto, Rob McConnell of the X-zone and several other smaller local shows.
I'm a graduate of the University of South Dakota and have attended graduate college at the University of Iowa School of Journalism which awarded me the 1963 Oelwein Register Scholarship in journalism for working on my hometown paper in Iowa.
Currently I live in Omaha, Nebraska with my husband, Fred. We have been married for 35 yrs and have 3 children, 9 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren.(We also have a Chihuahua and two black cats.) My husband is a retired school psychologist and former owner and manager of a family-run insurance agency. Fred Ress died on February 14th of this year.
