Born in Nova Scotia, and having held any number of odd jobs, from Hotline Psychic to Gravedigger, Patrick de Moss has always been writing. Or trying to avoid writing. A playwright, poet, and occasional prose writer, he feels somewhat uncomfortable talking about himself in the third person, and oft times relies on humour to save himself from being embarassed. This is one such time.

An intriguing book. I have never read anything like it. Couldn't put it down. A brilliant writer.

The short story, “Possession” by Patrick de Moss is a disturbing journey into the mind and an examination of the thin line that separates us all from “insanity”. What event is needed in our lives to tip us over that line?
I hope we will read much more from this very talented writer in future - maybe a novel? The writing style, to me, is reminiscent of the great William Faulkner, with extended flashbacks and puzzle pieces of memory holding the reader’s attention to the very last line.
