I was wondering whether you can help... I am trying to get in touch with Julie Patton but have not been able to find her website or blog so far. Maybe you know at what university or college she currently teaches or would be so kind to help with any other useful information. This is for no stalking purposes - just wanted to ask her about things she said in an inteview with Barbara Guest in 1998. Thank you very much in advance.
