A little about me:

I write short stories, poetry, and graphic novels. I am currently finishing up my latest graphic novel, The Old Place, which will be released soon. Am also doing old man stuff: bird watching, tuneless humming, asking people to speak up.

Oh yeah, I also read a lot. Check out my Richmond Authors page on the menu link. There are a lot of “gems” in this river city!

Drop me a line or two. I’d love to hear from you: davidmarkpatteson@gmail.com
