First Person


I’m a writer living and working from an airplane seat. I’ve cut down on the travel lately, but I still bounce between Washington DC, the Florida Keys, and Ireland. I’m not certain yet which you would call home.

I’m an engineer by training and trade which helps with the science fiction writing. I’ve studied Irish literature, history, and politics at the graduate level, which helps with the fantasy writing. And the crime and thriller writing? I’d rather not say.

I’ll give you a hint, though. It involves cats. Because they won’t give you a writer’s license unless you mention cats in your bio. Like I just did.

No cats were harmed in the process.

I love what I do, and I feel blessed that I get to do it every day. So thanks for reading my stories, and thanks for stopping by. If you have time to drop me a note please do so. Don’t be a stranger.

I’m a sometimes user of the social media. It’s best to send me a message through the contact form here if you need a quick response.

I’m Patrick O’Sullivan on Facebook and padraigwrites on Twitter.
