About this author

In April 1974, a beautiful baby boy was born at a small hospital in Mesa, Arizona. E. J. Patten (“Eric James”) was in the next crib over.

The first story he ever wrote involved a strange ad, a Laundromat, and a bowl of chili; thankfully, it was never published.

He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media Arts, and a Masters in Business Administration from Brigham Young University. He currently resides with his wife and three children in Utah.


Rumors of my abduction have been moderately exaggerated. I'm still here despite evidence to the contrary.
For those of you wondering when my next book is coming out...I have no idea.
Bad answer, I know.
I have several works in progress--including the third Hunter Chronicles book--but health issues have derailed my writing efforts over the last year or so. And no, I'm not that old.
Fortunately, I th... Read more of this blog post »

I liked this book so much, I blurbed it. It's seriously funny, which is a contradiction in terms, but true all the same. If you like books, especially the kind with words in them, I highly, highly recommend this one.

Awesome book. Non-stop action. Cool characters. If you like Jim Butcher (Dresden Files), you'll love this.

“Sometimes the hardest things to believe are the only things worth believing at al.”
E.J. Patten, Return to Exile

“And power without compassion is the worst kind of evil there is.”
E.J. Patten, Return to Exile

“Use your heart. Understand. Learn to see things
in the now, not as they were or will be, or as they might or
should be, but as they are, right now, in this moment. The
heart sees the now; the mind only sees the next. If you can’t
learn to see the now, you’ll never see what’s truly there, and
then where will you be?”
“Trapped”
“Precisely. But if you take care of the now, the future will
work out as it should.”
E.J. Patten, Return to Exile

E.J. Patten I wish I could make it come out sooner! I stayed up all night and finished draft 3 at six this morning so I could get it to my editor. I think this is the last draft and a Christmas release isn't so bad. I even worked in a great sequence involving Yule Logs (both the hardwood log and the dessert)!


Quantum Thief~ Decaying Butterfly Princess Yeah i wish it come out sooner!

Alix AAHHHH! E.J!!!! I'm so excited for The Legend Thief!!! Can you make it come out sooner??

Yes! I'm editing book 2 now. No official release date, but it will likely be next Fall.


Quantum Thief~ Decaying Butterfly Princess will there be a book 2 in Hunter chronicles? If so i'll be very happy :)

E.J. Patten No problem! Thanks for the invite. I checked out your website and saw that you got a copy of the ARC through Galley Grab. I hope you like it!
