Patrick Simpson

Biography

I've written three nonfiction books: Wheelchair Around the World (1997), Wheelchair Down Under (1999) and Whither thou Goest (2001). Ten years in the making, Desert Angels (2011) is my first fiction book, an epic historical novel based on the American West's Bannock Indian War of 1878. I've written travel articles for local publications and was editor and publisher of the Raleigh North Gideons International newsletter for fourteen years. I retired from IBM in 1993 as an advisory information developer after having helped develop several IBM software user publications. At the start of my career, I received scholarships to Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York, where I majored in English.

Fans of Dances with Wolves: this book is for you! What if the legends are true? What if there are angels? And one of them is a white girl…and the other a Native American woman? What if circumstances bring them together in a common cause…to stop a savage Indian War and to save two men; the lover of one…the beloved tribal chief of the other? Nothing stands in their way…except prejudice…except death.
