Meet the Author

A BRIEF HISTORY:I was born in Launceston, Australia to Jacob Williams and Martha Jane. My father was a businessman and my mother was a schoolteacher. I had an elder brother Philip Jane who unfortunately died in a car accident, god rest his soul.My education began at East Launceston Primary School but when I was four my parents divorced. My mother had to move in with her parents and as a result, my elder brother and I came to live at my Grandpa’s house in Ballina, New South Wales.My education continued at Bellina Primary School and later at Bellina High School where I did not show any traits of any savant and was an average student. However, I liked acting and often took part in school plays but acting was never a career option for me at that time.At age 19, I opted for Bachelor’s degree in commerce at University of Queensland where in second semester I met a person who cast me in a TV commercial. For a few hours labor, I was handsomely paid and that kindled the deep downed buried flare for acting in me.After completing my course at the university, I decided to pursue acting as a career rather than going for higher education or a secure job as my mother wished. I landed in Los Angeles, America and while supporting myself with part time and menial odd jobs, I dedicated myself full time for pursuing my dreams in Hollywood.I miserably failed in Hollywood. I went for countless auditions for the whole year; but was rejected every time, from everywhere. I never got any role in anything, not even the role of a dead body wrapped in a white sheet. And believe me, when you are scrapping off the life with part time jobs in pursuing dreams that shatter each day, life really becomes hard.I realized that Hollywood was not for me and made the right decision of quitting the unfruitful struggle. My family wanted me to return to Australia but I did not want to be perceived as a failure in back home, therefore I decided to settle in America and got myself enrolled in UCLA for MBA. My family helped me a lot both emotionally and financially in this decision and for that, I am eternally grateful to them.After completing my MBA, I joined Wal-Mart and I have been with them since then.I have been an avid reader of mystery novels and one day I said to myself, “Hey you know, you could also be a novelist.” So I decided to give it a shot. Let’s see what happens.One thing more, I am not a person who frequently indulges on social media for long hours that is because of time constraints. Therefore, I apologize to anyone in advance to whom I don’t reply in time.Sincerely YoursPatrick Jane
