About Wes Patterson

Wes Patterson (1938-2010) graduated with highest honors from Johns Hopkins University on a full academic scholarship, majoring in psychology and creative writing. He completed his post-graduate work at the University of Florida.

After leaving school, for a brief period of time, he became involved in crossbreeding and popularizing animals and reptiles as pets.

He believes, he was responsible for the current "ferret pet craze" as he "re-discovered" and "re-introduced" ferrets as pets in 1964.

He popularized and sold ferrets by the thousands to pet shops throughout the U.S. from his animal and reptile farm in Melrose, Florida.

There are now more than ten million pet ferrets in the U.S. and just recently New York City has become so inundated with the cute intelligent carnivores that the city council is considering new licensing laws.

He also popularized the malamute-wolf cross and various snakes and other reptiles as pets.
He has always been acutely aware of the environment and endangered vanishing species.
His other life-long interests include, paranormal psychology (regression and reincarnation) and serious literature.

He was a prize winner in the annual publication of "Best College Writing of 1964".

His poetry and prose have been published frequently in anthologies and poetry journals throughout the world, including Russia, India and Japan.

His writing deals with life, death and love and the ageless philosophical questions of existence that ancient philosophers have been pondering since the beginning of time.

In 1992 he met and married Irina Trefilieva, a Russian doctor of medicine, who came from a country where poetry and literature are greatly appreciated.

In her translation, much of his poetry has appeared in major Russian literary magazines and received excellent reviews.
