Meet the Author

The blundering and bemused tale of mischances and unlikely events that comprise the Kort Patteron's life history might indicate otherwise, but he never intentionally "set out adventuring". Each incremental step seemed reasonable within the context of the moment, even if their cumulative effects took him in directions that might appear somewhat less than rational when considered from the infinite perspective of hind-sight. In spite of best intentions to seek a quiet and orderly life, fate (and miscalculations) have already served up more unexpected twists and turns than he would care to admit. Perhaps the single most consistent aspect over the years has been that where he ended up has almost never been where he thought he was headed. Among the many unexpected results of the author's experiences are three novels, a dozen short stories, and over a hundred articles for readers to enjoy!

    Recommended, especially for skydivers or those yearning to be freer!

    A little slow-going at first if one isn't familiar with skydiving jargon, but the detailed description of a dive in the beginning is still exciting if you haven't jumped out of an airplane before. The pace picks up after a few chapters and really moves along. All the makings of an action flick - sex, drugs, no rock'n'roll, but car chases, mob figures, and guns. The ordinary-guy, skydiving addict gets himself into a seemingly no-win situation. The novel is laced with some messaging on the futility and annoyance of prohibitions. All-in-all a good read.
