WND welcomes new columnist

Recommended Posts

A new Diversions columnist, Patty Ann Malley, joined the WND team in March.



Patty Ann Malley



Malley specializes in Internet rambles, dragging the bemused reader through oddball whacky family-friendly places they might not normally go. Remember what it was like when your young son was obsessed with Batman? How about “printable” food? What’s the deal about nuns with guns? And what’s with trying to convince those with common sense that being uniquely stupid is preferable?


Malley reminds readers it’s all about life’s journey, and clinging to that which really matters – faith, family, moral values and a sense of humor.


Malley’s “Are we there yet?” approach stems from her own oddball whacky origins. One of eight kids (seven girls, one boy), her boisterous family managed to cram into an 1,100 square foot house with one bathroom while growing up, where extra packages of toilet paper were stored behind the sofa and her father cultivated a fervent interest (escape) in the backyard landscaping. The bathroom became increasingly crowded over time as seven teenage girls all tried to do their hair simultaneously. No wonder the backyard was tidy.


As a wife and mother, Malley was dragged from one end of the country to the other, seldom settling in one spot more than a couple of years as she and her husband followed employment opportunities. A self-described “work in progress,” she has gone from a wild child to a child of God. She is wickedly clever in the needle arts and managed to raise three kids as obsessed with opera as she is.


Through careers in retail, advertising, private stewardess, public relations, owning a restaurant, catechist, and ad-hoc needs-must fill-in-the-blank, she’s kept a sense of humor that’s hard to beat. Join Malley every Monday in her Diversions “Internet rambles” and see her latest journey. Whatever the destination, it’s sure to be a good time.
