Patrick de Moss


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.
