Yonkers Author Returns To Her Roots

Last year, I published my first literary work, YONKERS Yonkers!* I have recently completed Book Two The Heart of Yonkers, and Book Three is in development. During these turbulent times, there is a need to tell great stories about growing up in working-class Yonkers. 

Cookie Colangelo, the teen heroine of the Yonkers series, grapples with racism, sexual awakening, and the economic realities of growing-up working class. You don’t always get into the best schools and you don’t get the best breaks, but in the end, you get a chance to test your own mettle, to find out what you’re really made of. 

I can’t always predict what will be successful in popular culture. I only know the Yonkers saga will be told. So, I have made the decision move away from my P.R. practice. I’m turning my attention to my work as a writer. So far, I’ve published five books, and plan to publish many more.Writing has always been at the heart of my work as a P.R. Professional and I feel fortunate to now be able to devote my time to writing what I want.  

I will continue publishing news in our magazine The Connector and on our news portal. You can send me your articles and news items and I will consider them for publication.  To submit news and articles, email news@prforpeople.com

Thank you so much for the opportunity to work with you! 

Warm Regards, Patricia Vaccarino
