About the author

Patrick Dorn

Patrick Dorn is jealous that his father got to be born into a ranching family in historic Deadwood, while he made his first appearance in Burbank, CA, a cow pie’s throw from Disney Studios, during a broadcast of The Mickey Mouse Club. 

Formative childhood memories include having his mug shot taken at Yuma Territorial Prison, and scrambling over the landscape at Vasquez Rocks, a cheap and popular filming location for countless westerns and sci-fi “classics”. 

He used to write weird westerns set in Old California, New Mexico, and Colorado, but then he visited Ireland. Now his supernatural fiction alternates between The West and The Emerald Isle, but is always, always weird.

He's also an Anglican priest and a full-time chaplain.
