Welcome to the Writing Beautifully Blog!

Namaste, my name is Lesley Patterson, and I am the Author of this website and blog along with various works of all kinds.  I am a Published Author and a recognized Contest and Award-Winning Poet.  I am absolutely in love with the English language and have been ever since I was taught how to read and write at just 2 years old.  I was an Honor Student throughout most of my schooling and managed to start college at just17 years of age.  I majored in English and Psychology, and those are my two most favorite subjects.  I maintained a GPA of 3.85 throughout college at Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC) in Reno, NV.  I am an avid reader, writer, compulsive shopper, wife, mother, big sister, daughter, and the proud owner of both rescued cats and my one dog, Kali.  I have a great love of animals and am a Rescue Advocate and preach the importance of correct pet care in my spare time.  I have donated my time to many animal-related causes, and I am an enthusiastic supporter of In Defense of Animals.  I live in the Northern Nevada area, but am originally from Sacramento, California.  I’ve been with my husband Andrew for over 22 years now, ever since we first met in 1997 while attending the 8th Grade at Sylvan Middle School.  I love him with my whole being, every single fiber, and could not have gotten this far without his continued support, love, and encouragement.  I am also the beaming parent of an 18-year-old, whom I would also like to thank here.  (I love you, Amara!)  I also want to give a shout out to my Mom and my little brother, because I love them as well, plus it’s nice to be included…lol  (Love you Mom & AJ!)  Let’s get this party started!  Here you will find my various works, rants, ramblings, poems, news articles, short stories, and much more.  Please remember to Like, Share, & Subscribe so you don’t miss any of the very beautifully written writing which will be featured here.  Sit back, pull up a chair, and grab a tall, cold glass of your favorite caffeinated beverage (or can as it may be…Damn, I am absolutely obsessed with Rockstar Punched, those highly caffeinated energy drinks in the 16 ounces cans…They have gotten me through so many long nights of work.)  So happy you came and know this is just the very beginning, I have a lot of big plans for myself, my career, and this website and blog.  Everyone loves the Underdog, right?  Well, here she is, the main bad-ass bitch, Lesley Patterson aka Lady Opaque, and she’s here to stay!  This has been the first installment of WritingBeautifully.com/Blog, thank you for joining me on this journey.  Stick around to find out more and enjoy many beautifully written pieces of different kinds.

Blessed Be & Cheers to all,

Lesley Patterson (aka Lady Opaque)
