Recently, Paetro told a friend she’s reached the point where her name will be linked to Patterson’s in her obituary. The friend said, “They’ll probably be linked on your tombstone: Maxine Paetro, with James Patterson.” Paetro told this to Patterson, who deadpanned, “Why should your name be first?”

Paetro demurred, “Well...it’s my body,” to which he replied, “I see it as ‘James Patterson Presents.’”

Retelling the story, she laughs long and hard, shaking her head with affection. “How could you not love working with a guy like that?”

The gardens at Broccoli Hall will be open to the public on July 14 as part of Amenia’s Hidden Gardens Tour. Visit www.broccolihall.com for details.
