Pat Gallant Sales
Professional Writer
Pat Gallant is a fourth generation native New Yorker, wife and mother of a son. Both of her parents were professional writers. Her work has appeared in publications such as the Saturday Evening Post, Writer's Digest, The New Press Literary Quarterly, Cup of Comfort for Christmas and Chicken Soup for the Writer's Soul, etc. Most recently, her literary nonfiction can be found in Christmas Traditions (Adams Media/F & W Publications); A Cup Of Comfort for the Grieving Heart; Migraine Expressions; Family Gatherings; Love, the Second Time Around; Things That Go Bump in the Night; Vacations; The Simple Pleasures of Friendship; Letters to My Mother; and A Cup of Comfort for Writers. More of her work is slated to appear in several anthologies with projected release dates through 2011.

Ms. Gallant was a finalist in the 1991 PEN Syndicated Fiction Project and has won the New Century Writer's Award in 1999, 2001, 2002, and 2003. She has been a finalist for the Grand Prize in the William Faulkner Literary Competition for the last 16 years and in 2008 won Special Honorable Mention in the Essay category.

She is co-moderator of the National Writers Union on-line Literary Forum and runs a workshop for professional writers. Ms. Gallant has just completed a book of literary nonfiction shorts called, "Holding On To Right-Side Up," a title born out of the shocking revelation - gratuitously told to her by her father when she was only six years old - "that the earth is a turning sphere and half the time we are upside down, held on only by gravity."
