Joe Biden President of the United States

Award Winning Author, Speaker, Artist, Historian, Philosopher, Entrepreneur, Globetrotter, horse whisperer, it is hard to place Patricia Daly-Lipe’s success into one main category. With over 30 years of professional experience of being a successful artist, educator& entrepreneur, and over 18 years as a published and award-winning author in the literary industry, Patricia Daly-Lipe has certainly proven herself not only as an accomplished professional and expert in various fields but has proven herself as a woman of enormous scope and invigorating wisdom. As a dynamic, results-driven leader, she has demonstrated success as an award-winning author, writing 10 books of all different genres, presenting on numerous subjects to large crowded audiences. She hopes her book A Cruel Calm, Paris Between the Wars might be considered for a movie. Another of her books, Patriot Priest (Strategic Media Books, 2013) received the following review: Patricia Daly-Lipe puts us back in time to 1916, where we are caught up in the bloody, unrelenting trench warfare of World War I. The Patriot Priest is the true story of her great uncle, a Catholic priest who lived through the nightmare of a war that couldn’t be won or lost, but had to be endured. His steadfast sense of duty in the face of death and destruction is especially moving to us today, as we try and make sense of the endless wars that rage around us, and the inevitable moral question of whether we should “get involved.”
