When he isn't writing or reading, you'll find him running, doing yoga, or looking up vegan cake recipes. His favorite novels are Briefing for a Descent into Hell, by Doris Lessing, and Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokov.

Patrick received his Interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts in Letters & Modern Languages from the University of Central Florida. With the release of his ambitious first work, he aims to share his love for horror and fantasy fiction with readers around the world.

That ending! Tears, man, tears.

So much detail, so expertly written. Equally romantic and appalling, loaded with characters that are alive with motivation. You can almost feel their hatred, their violence, their lusts and passions. So looking forward

Austin Osman Spare
“The more Chaotic I am, the more complete I am.”
Austin Osman Spare

Joris-Karl Huysmans
“Worshiping the Devil is no more insane than worshiping God...It is precisely at the moment when positivism is at its high-water mark that mysticism stirs into life and the follies of occultism begin.”
Joris-Karl Huysmans

Aleister Crowley
“I slept with faith and found a corpse in my arms on awakening; I drank and danced all night with doubt and found her a virgin in the morning.”
Aleister Crowley, The Book of Lies

Anthony Burgess
“Language exists less to record the actual than to liberate the imagination.”
Anthony Burgess

Iain Banks
“A death is always exciting, always makes you realise how alive you are, how vulnerable but so-far-lucky; but the death of somebody close gives you a good excuse to go a bit crazy for a while and do things that would otherwise be inexcusable. What delight to behave really badly and still get loads of sympathy!”
Iain Banks, The Wasp Factory
