Her first book, Wee Three: A Mothers Love In Verse, a children’s poetry book, illustrated by Hazel Mitchell, was a collaborative effort and a labor of love.

The Madonna is the story of childhood dreams lost and re-found. It is a brief snatch of a memory of a time when a young girl has found out all the things that grown-ups tell her she can't be or do, and the magic has gone out of her life. Yet, she finds something that forever brings back her ability to believe in more than what we call the ordinary.
I labeled it fiction although I believe it to be a memory that my mother had of a day and time in her youth. Knowing my mother as I did, something like it could have happened.
Until the day she died, she believed that all things were possible.

Both Ms. Moran and Ms. Bishop, have described their part in this book as merely the typists.
If it had been anybody else, I would have felt kind of sad about it, I mean, a little old lady with no life other than the file department. But with Miss Tofte, you had an altogether different feeling. This was the way she liked it, make no mistake, this was her choice.
Anyway, I guess I have pretty well established that to all appearances Miss Tofte had always and was always in the files, and she gave every indication of going on this same way forever. She probably would have too, if something had not happened to change her world.
Miss Tofte is a paranormal story that will chill, delight, and leave you wondering.
Originally penned by my mother Patricia Moran, and finished by Marta Moran Bishop.
