Patricia L. Brooks is an award winning author, speaker, and publisher.

Patricia’s Jan 2016 launch of her second memoir Three Husbands and a Thousand Boyfriends enhances her storytelling of love addiction, domestic violence and post-traumatic stress. She converses regularly on these critical topics to law enforcement, victim’s advocates, university students, church communities and other interested parties seeking recovery in these vital areas.

While her friends danced and partied at Woodstock, Patricia donned her first wedding dress. Haunted by her self-destructive patterns, she searched years for the one who would fill the emptiness in her heart.

This poignant and moving memoir follows Patricia’s dangerous journey through love addiction, domestic violence, and post-traumatic stress. Her raw reflections and conversations with God offer a glimpse into the heartbreaking chaos she survived.
Patricia bares her soul and shares her harrowing experiences and emotional insights from her struggle to find the courage to accept her role in her own life. For every woman who has followed her heart instead of her head, Patricia’s story offers hope and inspiration.

“Patricia takes the reader on her healing journey from fear, shame and anxiety to self-love and trust in God. Anyone who knows the destruction addiction causes can gain hope, insight and strength from reading Three Husbands and a Thousand Boyfriends.”
Elisabeth Davies, MC, Author of Good Things Emotional Healing Journal: Addiction
