One of the (optional) benefits for those who become a patron of Orna Ross's Creative Business Planning Workshops is to be featured here on this page.

Most patrons who choose this feature are writers enrolled in Orna's Planning for Profit program. Scroll down to read all about them and their many achievements.

Reita Pendry

“Hello, my name is Reita Pendry. I live in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. I am a retired criminal defence attorney and I write legal mysteries.

A fun fact that most people don’t know about me is that I wrote and published a ghost story novella, under a pseudonym.

I’m Orna’s patron on Patreon because I need an organized way to approach my writing as a business. I now have 5 novels in my Mercy Johnson series and I do next-to-nothing to promote them. I want to change that.”

Karen Pearce

“I’m Karen Pearce from Cornwall, England, and I’m currently editing my first novel in an Epic Fantasy series.

Not a lot of people know that I talk to spiders to overcome my fear of them. It works!

I’m Orna’s patron on Patreon because of her outstanding work with ALLi. I also share her demonstrated passion for artistic expression and freedom.”


“I’m Bonnie Lacy from Osceola, NE USA, an author.

Not a lot of people know that I like to doodle.

I’m Orna’s patron on Patreon because I love her poetry (I’m not a poet!) and because she is very sincere and gracious. She has done amazing things in founding Alliance.”

Dorah Blume

“I’m Deborah Bluestein (Dorah Blume) from Boston, a writer/illustrator.

Not a lot of people know that I had a love affair with a blue guitar.

I’m Orna’s patron on Patreon because I am so grateful for all she does for the writing community and most especially for the guided meditations and f-r-e-e-writes I have been doing with her since September of 2018.”
