THE DIVA DOCTRINE
"Patricia V. Davis is the ultimate diva! Wise and witty, she enlightens the rest of us on how to remain true to ourselves, how to shine in a world that needs her beacons of hope like never before.
Every young woman should have a copy of THE DIVA DOCTRINE."
~ New York Times Bestselling Author Brenda Novak
"Davis is like the cool aunt who tells it like it is. With two failed marriages and 50 years of life lessons under her belt, she’s comfortable with her role as a horrible warning rather than a good example."
~ Deseret News
Patricia V. Davis posted that piece of advice along with several others in the hopes that they'd help one of her 20-something readers save the precious time she was wasting by torturing herself needlessly, something too many young women do. That first simple post hit a nerve; within a week it turned into an internet phenomenon ─ reposted by hundreds of other blogs, linked to StumbleUpon and read by thousands. That massive response led to the creation of the inspirational, yet witty and down-to-earth book, The Diva Doctrine: 16 Universal Principles Every Woman Needs to Know. It's the antidote to youth being "wasted on the young".
"...Delicious..." ~ Marin Independent Journal
Harlot's Sauce teems with terrific supporting players and the kind of crisp details which make the narrative pop off the page." ~ Christian Toto, Donne Tempo
"She became the girlfriend you cheer on, cry with, and just plain enjoy. She's brave, she's very funny, and she's written what is destined to become a best seller." ~ Patti Heiser, 50fabulous.com
"Witty, human, readable..." ~ bitchbuzz.com
When Patricia, “the naïve American” meets Gregori, “the gorgeous Greek”, her Sicilian-born father takes spectacularly extreme measures to try to stop her from marrying him. This is just one of many wrong reasons why Patricia is all the more determined to do so. She even moves with Gregori to Greece, where he insists he must be in order to be happy. Once there, she discovers that though she might not save her marriage, she just might save herself.
With vivid descriptions of life in beautiful, modern-day Greece, this memoir is both a tasty treat and an exhilarating sail on the Hellenic seas through xenophobia, dysfunctional family units, religious ravings, obsessive protocols, political disorder, European football, and fabulous food. As the Italians say, Buon Appetito! (Good Appetite!) As the Greeks say, Kalo Taxidi! (Good Voyage!)
