About the Author
Edward C. Patterson has been writing novels, short fiction, poetry and drama his entire life, always seeking the emotional core of any story he tells. With his eighth novel, The Jade Owl, he combines an imaginative touch with his life long devotion to China and its history. He has earned an MA in Chinese History from Brooklyn College with further post graduate work at Columbia University. A native of Brooklyn, NY, he has spent four decades as a soldier in the corporate world gaining insight into the human condition. He won the 1999 New Jersey Minority Achievement Award for his work in corporate diversity. Blending world travel experiences with a passion for story telling, his adventures continue as he works to permeate his reader's souls from an indelible wellspring.

The book covers the gamut of his experiences, both as a gay man ("I'm Out" and "Not Just Survival"), and as a sensitive observer of the world around him ("Winter Reigns" and "Roberta"). He even has a bit of fun with the whole idea of poetry ("A Verse Perverse")
This is not a children's book as the subject matter and words in many of the poems are for more mature audiences, but for the person, whether gay or straight, who is interested in understanding how one gay man views the world, this book is a treat.
