6:45 p.m. SPEAKER Patty Kogutek, award winning author of A Change of Habit and workshop facilitator on No Guilt shares her spiritual journey and book marketing ideas.
Were you one of those “pregnant” women with a book in you that just had to come out? Well, I wasn’t. With a guilt-laden heart I was led kicking and screaming to my computer. Learn how the writing process and marketing experiences have helped identify the journey from Sister Mary Kateri to Sister Mary Vodka.
After serving as a Catholic nun for seven years, Patty Kogutek continued her work in education as a teacher, school librarian, and school administrator. Her degrees include a doctorate degree from the University of Southern California.
Based on her award winning book, “A Change of Habit, Patty conducts workshops, speaks, and writes (including Montana Woman magazine and SmartFem magazine in Phoenix) to help readers move from a life based on guilt and anxiety to living life on their own terms.
