About Me

My name is Patrick, and I am a young aspiring author in the process of writing a collection of fantasy novels during my gap year travelling.

I am a Product Design graduate form the University of Huddersfield, and it was during my degree that I found my love for writing. After reading novels such as 'The Name of the Wind', 'Malazan, Book of the Fallen', and 'The Wizard of Earthsea', as well as rereading classics such as 'Harry Potter' and 'The Lord of the Rings', I decided it was time I should find the time to try and write my own tale.

I Love to travel, and find this a great time to concentrate on my writing. Currently travelling South-East Asia, I have previously spent time in the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon, South Africa and Nepal.

When I am not writing or exploring the globe, I take part as much as possible in extreme sports where time allows. I am a competent snowboarder, surfer, rock climber, as well as a certified SCUBA diver.

As for my writing, I began my first novel 'Starchild' in 2014, which was my first finished novel and is currently in the process of being published. As well as continuing this series, my next current focus is on the story 'Silent Pillars' which I have recently put my attentions towards. Other current works include 'The Ledge', which I intend to finish, albeit being somewhat a lighthearted demo to 'Silent Pillars', 'Finding Volaris', a new and insightful first-person adventure inspired by Patrick Rothfuss' 'The Name of the Wind', and a series of poems I write when I have the time or inspiration.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my writing, and I look forward to hearing any feedback that may be forthcoming.

Happy readings!
