Patterson says that his deeply personal professional mission was forged from his development of a sassy character named Lamby Lambpants, a plush to...more


Lamby Lambpants and FriendsMeet Happy-Not-Cranky Illustrator Katya Bowser

When it came to developing the world of Lamby Lambpants, I wanted to do everything myself. I mean, I designed every aspect of the characters and story, even designing their looks and visual identities.

And then reality hit me: my artistic strengths, while very good, weren't suited for the work needed to take Lamby to the next level. I needed help, s... Read more of this blog post »

“No, you cannot stop the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can stop them from building nests in your hair.”
D. Byron Patterson

“One conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study in a public school.”
D. Byron Patterson

“There are no endings, only beginnings that have been reborn.”
D. Byron Patterson

“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies . . . Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die . . . It doesn't matter what you do, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

“I often hear people say that they read to escape reality, but I believe that what they’re really doing is reading to find reason for hope, to find strength. While a bad book leaves readers with a sense of hopelessness and despair, a good novel, through stories of values realized, of wrongs righted, can bring to readers a connection to the wonder of life. A good novel shows how life can and ought to be lived. It not only entertains but energizes and uplifts readers.”
Terry Goodkind
