About the Author

A true believer in listening to one's passion, Patrick Greenwood began writing in early 2020 based on several trips he made while cycling in various countries. In this novel, Sunrise in Saigon, Patrick draws upon several non-fictional events that happened in Vietnam including the war with the US, the last days of Saigon falling, and the chaos at the US embassy. Having remembered these events as a young man, Patrick grew up wanting to travel to Vietnam someday and visit these places for himself.

In 2012, Patrick did make the first trip to Vietnam to find the lost US embassy and the catholic nuns that helped with 'Operation Babylift'. Patrick followed his passion for cycling by completing several bike tours in Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong delta regions.

After military service, Patrick embarked on the 25-year career in the information technology field, working in various roles in sales, engineering, support, and design. Many of his inspirations for writing came via his business travels to places like Vietnam, China, Japan, Taiwan and Portugal.

Patrick holds a BS and MBA in Global Marketing from the University of Phoenix (online) along with completing several post-graduate certificate programs in information security, Internet of Things, and global management from MIT. Patrick is married and resides in Carlsbad, California.
