My Books

Introducing

Avoid losing precious time during your vacation by always knowing where you are, what's all around you, and what might be interesting to you. With Spinicity® Spinner Boards, you can avoid lines, spread out in the city, and see at least twice as many things than you would if you were constantly lost. And it conforms to the MINDFUL TRAVEL standards!

And the price is merely the cost of a book!

All of my travel books now come with a Spinicity Spinner Board - free! Very simply, the Spinner Boards are a highly organized (and might I say, creative?) way to organize a destination city. Our patented boards are color-coordinated by site type, and they tie directly with the city map on the back of the board, as well as directly to the page numbers in the book. NOTHING makes traveling to a complicated city easier than our Spinicity® Spinner Boards - and they're FREE inside each printed book!  The Spinicity® boards are light as a feather and will tuck quietly into your purse or backpack.

Let's Talk ITALY!

Have you ever wanted to visit an archaeological dig site? Well, put on your Indiana Jones because here you go! ROME has some of the coolest archaeological sites in the world, and they are all waiting for you! Over the past decades, archaeologists have uncovered a huge amount of Rome's history, and this is the only guide book that will help you get to all of them. And with our FREE Spinicity® Spinner Board, you will quickly find over 101 sites to visit in Rome - all on your own! 

What is the single most important thing to a Florentine? The Renaissance! (And you thought it was their food, right?)  This is the only travel guide that will connect all of the dots of Florence and the Renaissance, enabling you to get a much deeper sense of who that city really is! And with our FREE Spinicity® Spinner Board, you will quickly find over 101 sites to visit in Florence - all on your own! And the food? Oh, yah... that's amazing too!

Most travel books will take you to the same few sites as the others. But this book will take you back 1,500 years and make you question why you never learned about it in school! Sure, you'll get lost in Venice - it's part of the fun. But this book will show you what you are passing by while you are trying to find your way out. And understand why Venice was considered one of the most formidable powers in Western Europe - for 1,000 years! Let Spinicity® show you 101 sites to see in Venice!

About Me

AUTHOR | SPEAKER

For 16 years, Patty served on the Director's Council of the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA. During those years, she traveled with scientists to research lost and ancient cultures. This experience made her an expert traveler that wanted to know more. A marketing writer and photographer by trade, Patty took her love of history, archaeology and travel and mushed them together with her natural inclination for writing and photography. The result is a new line of travel books and tools that incorporates today's way of thinking mindfully while going deeper than ever before.

And then, there's Trader Joe!

What the Experts are Saying

Where were Patty's travel books when we were doing seminars in Italy? I own many travel books, but Patty's are uniquely different. Let her show you that there really IS a better, more mindful way to travel. 

Jack Canfield Author of the beloved "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series

As the author of nearly 50 travel books, I know travel books! Patty has done something very unique here. She has a way of making you 'see' your trip differently. You will go deeper and leave more satisfied.

Pictures, pictures, pictures! Who wouldn't want a ton of photos to help them to visualize history? Not just a travel book, but one that will compel our students to dig deeper ~ and have fun while doing it.
