Carlette is the author of the book, I Thought We Had Forever - A Love Story.
I Thought We Had Forever is a collection of love letters, emails, and journal entries that reveal the passion and pain a family went through when their forever ended on July 28, 2004. It is a love story that began when retired NBA player Steve Patterson took a blank piece of paper and penned a collection of love letters that changed the course of many lives. His wife, Carlette, holds on to her family as her five-year-old daughter is forced to understand grief, her young adult daughter finds her way back from drug addiction, and her oldest daughter navigates life with Aspergers. Experience their raw emotions as they search for hope, hanging on to their faith and finding a love more powerful than pain.
