Some of Patrick's earliest memories are of lying on the floor of his bedroom reading the Junior Classics, Hardy Boys, superhero comic books, and anything to do with mythology.
Torn between the lure of a life in the theatre and becoming a "creative writer," Patrick abandoned his leaky fountain pen for footlights and fame, eventually earning a Master's degree in Theatre from the University of Denver. He performed in dinner theatre and community productions, taught Drama and English Composition, and published more than 1,000 theatre reviews. He has more than 40 published plays.
Patrick's fiction writing interests include Weird Western (western horror, western fantasy, and just plain weird westerns), children's books and supernatural thrillers.
Patrick serves as a chaplain, providing spiritual health care to frail seniors. He is happily married to a real-life superhero named Abby and likes to go for long walks with his Black Lab/Great Dane rescue dog Frankie.
