Overview

This colorful, whimsical, rhyming religious picture book tells the story of David and Goliath from the stone's point of view. The pebble is lowly and meek, mocked by nearby stones and boulders because it dreams of flying. As part of God's creation, the pebble trusts that it has value, meaning and purpose. Suddenly, a hand reaches down, picks up the pebble, and propels it into history. Parents and children will love the rhyming narrative and the attractive, simple images. The book includes recommended Bible references and questions encouraging conversation about the value and purpose of all of us, as the beloved of God.

About the Author

Some of Patrick's earliest memories are of lying on the floor of his bedroom reading the Junior Classics, Hardy Boys, super hero comic books, and anything to do with mythology.

Torn between the lure of a life in the theatre and becoming a "creative writer," Patrick abandoned his leaky fountain pen for footlights and fame after high school, eventually earning a Master's degree in Theatre from the University of Denver. He performed in dinner theatre and community productions, and taught Drama and English Composition courses at Ojai Valley School, then later at Colorado Christian University.

Since a "Master's" degree implies some level of mastery, he graduated from acting to directing and ultimately playwriting, or as he likes to call it, "playing God." He has approximately 40 published plays, most of which were written for Colorado ACTS, a Christian-run drama school.

Patrick is returning to fiction writing, with a particular interest in children's books and supernatural thrillers.

Patrick serves as a chaplain for InnovAge, providing spiritual healthcare to frail seniors, and visiting palliative care patients. He is happily married to a real-life saint (and therefore super hero) named Abby, and likes to go for long walks with his Black Lab/Great Dane rescue dog Frankie.
