Biography

Writing became a big part of my life in 2005 when a friend (Author Misti Dawn) and I began writing stories with one another. I was still in high school at the time and we would write just for the fun and pure joy we experienced through writing. My writing took a bit of a hiatus when I finished high school and started college to earn my degree in Criminal Justice. That didn’t last very long, because a few months after starting college I was diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome in 2009. Months later I found out the only thing that helped keep my ticks at bay was writing, and I picked the art back up. Wickedly Misunderstood was the first novel I began writing after my diagnosis and it all started with a dream. My advice to everyone is to find something that you love doing and do it. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it, because if you love it enough you’ll succeed. Do what you love, and love what you do. You never know what your dreams can lead you to accomplish.

Smashwords Interview

How do you approach cover design?
When I designed the cover of Wickedly Misunderstood it was an idea in my head. I eventually drew the idea out and painted it, and then placed it into the background you see it on, on the cover. I like to do my own cover designs because I feel it makes it more personal, and who better to create the perfect cover for your book, then yourself.
What are your six favorite books, and why?
My favorite books changed based upon what I'm reading at the time. Right now my six favorites are:

The End of Dreams by Misti Blake
The Thin Places by Laura Cowan
Daughters of Night: Sanctuary by Ashley Torbeck
Virals by Kathy Reichs
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showwalter

My all time favorite book is Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol

Smashwords book reviews by Chasity Nicole

  • Inside the Bear's Lair on March 05, 2014

    It was a really cute story and my nine year old brother enjoyed reading it. I didn't exactly agree with the word 'bosom' and 'breast' being used. Also it got a little confusing at the end. The illustrations we're absolutely phenomenal, and overall I really enjoyed reading the story to my little brother.
  • The Ghost of Cabin 664 on Dec. 28, 2015

    The Ghost of Cabin 664 is a tantalizing short read that leaves you really wanting more. Patrick gets you hooked quickly and makes it nearly impossible to put the story down. And once you reach the end you are left wanting more and a hollow feeling develops because the story is over. A part of me is curious if these characters are ever mentioned again, or if this was simply a short stand-alone amazing tale. The way Patrick describes how Lenny feels when he encounters the ghost is scarily accurate. Everything stands on end and your body feels like electricity is coursing through it, and he definitely makes you feel that way as you read the first encounter. Not to mention the other elements that he describes, that I won’t detail because I don’t want to give away spoilers. But let’s just say, he depicts is with accuracy that makes anyone with any paranormal experience nod in agreement. I look forward to reading more amazing pieces from Patrick and can’t wait to read the next piece I have of his. He’s a brilliant writer and paints a vivid picture. His descriptions show you exactly what is going on and leaves you on the edge of your seat as you keep reading and following Lenny.
  • Foo Foo on Jan. 05, 2016

    Foo Foo by Patrick is an amazing retelling of Little Bunny Foo Foo, and is not what I was expecting at all. The characters are so well developed and you just can't help but adore Milton from the start, actually all of the characters to be honest. However, as the story progresses things get twisted and you see how much the government really has an affect on people. The story is so highly accurate even as far as people go, because sometimes we can act like blind mice following a twisted leader. I didn't expect the story to end like it did and I'm quite stunned that it ended in the manner it did. But that's always great when I don't see the ending coming and I'm left wanting to scream at the characters in the story because they're wrong. Patrick is a brilliant writer and I've enjoyed each piece I've read and his and can't wait to read more of his work and see what the future holds for him in the publishing world.
