Pat Stainke

Copyeditor, Book Blurb Copywriter

E5 - Copyeditor PatPat is a retired foreign language teacher turned freelance writer and copyeditor who enjoys the endless mysteries and playfulness of language. Originally from the Washington, D.C. area, her father served as a foreign diplomat, and she fell in love with the French language on a boat dock in Le Havre, France at the age of ten. She spent the next few years absorbing as much foreign language and culture as she could, and learning to appreciate the ties and patterns between the two.

After homeschooling her children, Pat worked as a Reference and Children’s Librarian for a few years, followed by a decade teaching HS French.

Fascinated with the field of social media marketing, Pat now writes and copyedits for entrepreneurs who need support in the marketing and other written aspects of their businesses. She especially enjoys writing “About Me” stories in a way that will strengthen their brand and draw in their ideal clients.
When she isn’t writing, she is substitute teaching kids with severe emotional trauma. In her leisure time she is a fabric artist, and loves cycling and swimming. Her reading genres of choice include Biography and European History. She is a long-time journal keeper and a new blogger. The proud mother of three adult children who live interesting lives, she lives in South Texas with her pilot/IT husband and four cats: Keoki, Pepito, Sydney, and Cricket. The top item on her bucket list is to take an 8-day trip across Russia on the Trans-Siberian Railway. You can find Pat on Twitter @PersuasiveMouse; blog, and soon on her website (currently under construction) at
