Patrick Bran spent much of his early life moving around. As a young man he traveled everywhere from the Middle East to Antarctica by way of the US Army. He then returned home to Washington State, where he began college and started his lifelong involvement with theatre. Over the next several years he worked at acting and stagecraft, eventually moving to Washington DC where he went to work for a nationally-renowned regional theatre. When progress demanded it, Patrick left the scene shop and took the reins of the company's young web presence, a job he has now been doing for a decade. Patrick still lives in Washington DC with his wife and two daughters. He writes fiction and gets his best ideas from ancient history, myth and the legends of the past.
