“Mocha Overboard” is a true Maine story that is told through the voice of Mocha, a beloved labradoodle. This delightful story takes place on Great Pond in Belgrade on the Fourth of July.

This story is sure to keep your interest and will become a Maine classic, as stated in a news release.

Farrin’s children’s stories are written from true-life events. Author of “The Teacup Cafe” published in 2018, Patty conveys messages of love, acceptance and kindness. Born in Augusta, Patty is a proud mom of Amy and Jac and is retired from a career with the federal government.

“I enjoy encouraging children to read. I believe reading as a child helps children to become thinkers as adults. You can open a book and take a trip without ever leaving home. I also encourage children to write so they, too, may become authors someday,” said the author in a news release.
