Local author Patty Sroka will be signing her book, "Relentless," on Saturday, May 12 at Greetings and Readings in Hunt Valley from 4 to 7 p.m. She will also be doing a book signing on May 19 in Laurel, Del., at the Changing Fates Equine Rescue.
If you would like to purchase her book online or at the bookstore, Patty uses the name, P.J. O'Dwyer as her pen name. I have a signed copy of her book and have been reading it. I can tell you that it's really a great book. I've really enjoyed reading it and wish I had more time to sit down and read more of it each day. It's a romance mystery. I pride myself on being able to identify the villain in most books, but I'm stumped on this one. That is the key to a good book.
The youth group at St. Michael's Catholic Church is again collecting ink jet cartridges, cell phones and chargers for their recycling fundraiser.
