Patterson weaves an effective yarn about one woman's cowardice coming back to haunt her. The prose creates a tale that is as murky and mysterious as the location that traps the heroine (and us) in her guilt-ridden nightmare; when her dirty little secret manifests itself...shivers are guaranteed!
Born in Reading, Pennsylvania in 1973, to parents who eventually packed the family up and hustled them north to Canada, Josh now lives in Los Angeles and, unlike many authors, is alive and well - if a little dehydrated.
He's traveled through Europe, been wedged between couch cushions in a small village in Germany, was stranded in a Heidelberg train station without being able to say more than danke and bitte. He's lived in Chicago, Montana, the Saskatchewan north woods, and Calgary, Alberta. All this he attributes to his unique style of writing and versatility.
His short stories span multiple genres from suspense to literary to fantasy. Some have accused him of being scatter-brained, unable to focus on a single style, but he likes to think of himself as a literary magpie: content to find the next shiny story wherever it catches his eye.
