Patty Ihm

Patty Ihm lives on a farmette in Northern Illinois with her husband, Dan, their children who have not yet left the nest, and the strong memories of those that have. She spends her days tending her flock of chickens and children, working in the garden, drinking coffee, and listening to baseball on the radio. As a teacher, early intervention therapist, and foster/adoptive parent, Patty is an activist for children and families. She is grateful for those near and far that have helped her find meaning in the messages and have encouraged her to put pen to paper to share the simplicity, hope, and reverence to be found in everyday.

Patty’s middle-grade novel, Goldie Bird, is set to be released in 2022.
