‘This story – of love, albeit fleeting and unrequited – is
marvellously fresh and adventurous. There is a deliciously strange quality to the drama, and the characters are vivid. A distinct sense of creative risk-taking pervades the work, especially in the way it is presented almost as a poem. I have not forgotten the story and its people, and I am sure others will not forget it either.’ – Nigel Featherstone, Judge of the Stuart Hadow Short Story Prize 2020
‘The Bill Bryson of pandemic orgies.’ – A stranger, commenting on a Facebook post.
‘Combining a unique way of seeing the world with an incredible talent for wordsmithing, Pat is one of the best copywriters in the market. Whenever we hit a creative block, Pat was always there to change our perspective and get us through it.’ – Justin Meneguzzi, Global Content Manager, Intrepid Travel
‘We were extremely fortunate to contract Pat’s services to re-write travel itineraries and website copy. This huge undertaking and commitment was completed in a no fuss manner and executed to perfection. Pat’s skill of adapting copy to various demographics, and his ability to bring life into everything he writes through his talented craft, is nothing short of exceptional.’ – Glenyce Johnson, Founder of Wandering the World
