Patricia Carrigan's Summary

I create an entertaining environment in a readers mind through words on a page. Yes, I am a writer... Enjoy a journey through my imagination, won't you?

Publishing Antiserum at 16, I then learned and implemented social media and other marketing techniques to expand book sales and my Brand image. All while attending school, working and writing my next novel. I was accepted into the People to People Ambassador Program, traveling the British Isles. My latest honor, Woman of the year NAPW! (National Association of Professional Women)

In college studying Dance I'm still writing which allows me to continue to support The Burn Institute of San Diego. My second book, The Rising, Antiserum Part II is now published!

ALSO, I want to someday reach my goal in aquiring a TEDDY BEAR SUIT... don't you want to know why?? ask me :D

What is it that you can do for me? Simple. I am donating 50% of my profits from Antiserum Part I to The Burn Institute of San Diego, an extremely worthwhile cause. They helped my sister after she was burned in an accident as a child. They help so many children. I'm giving back ... however I can't do much without attention for #Antiserum. That's where you come in! I have all the drive I need, I'm just asking for a push. Help #share the word about Antiserum. Tweet, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ ... Like it on #Amazon. Tell your friends. :-F

Below I've included a link tp my newly updated website. A new preview for Antiserum you can't find anywhere else. previews of The Rising, my blog, great guest blogs... photos and more! (Even crazy Happy dance and skipping videos made by my friends who've let their inner child out!) I've made sure to include many of my links so we may connect :D

Patricia Carrigan's Honors and Awards

  • People to People Student Ambassador

    People to People Student Ambassador Program
    • June 2012

    Travelled as a Student Ambassador with other Ambassadors to London, Wales, Ireland, North Ireland and Scotland. Before hand there was a strict selection process and we learned so much about the history and culture of each region we were to visit. As Ambassadors, we were to meet with heads of Government and volunteer to help the elderly, which we did by gathering peat. Now that was an experience! There was so much we saw and too many experiences to write about. It was a twenty day whirlwind that I'll never forget.

    I earned college credit for my hard work before and during the trip as well as a certificate.

    Jocelyn Bairen is back and with a vengence. Her addiction to fresh blood has caused her to make secret hunting trips that her family doesn’t know about, otherwise Vasile would be called to inject her with the Antiserum and make her forget everything. She had been home schooled for the past year and is now allowed to go back, causing her to become even more cunning in order to satisfy her addiction. But the reappearance of her old flame Adrian calms her momentarily while the truth of Emil’s intentions is revealed... Emil wants her, and he’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants.

    Sixteen-year-old high school student Jocelyn loves blood; she lives for it. She's a blood addict. But that's not all that's going on in her life. Strange dreams haunt her sleep; she can read minds; and she hears voices in her head. And she discovers that J.B.--her twin sister--and their friends Sadie and Nikki all have similar powers. She learns that all of them a part of a group known as the Genetic Race. But their powers and existence are threatened by another group known as the Others, and their only hope lies in traveling to Transylvania, where they must locate a special blood-filled amulet. On this trip, with the help of the very attractive Adrian, Jocelyn will discover that the very substance she needs to survive may have become her new and very deadly addiction.
