AUTHOR Patricia Sentinella has finally had recognition for her work after getting her first book published.

The South Weston writer will now see her new book Dear John, Dear Anyone ... on sale in The Book House, Thame from Friday.

Her book is a mix of poetry and short stories, as well as small pieces of her autobiography.

Patricia has been writing all her life and was delighted to have finally got her writing published.

She said: “It is really nice because if it isn’t published then it stays in a cupboard and doesn’t get read.

“Writing is something I have always done so I feel quite lucky to be published.”
