imageJ.L. Pattison is the author of fast-paced, plot-driven speculative fiction for contemplative misanthropes.

The two greatest influences on his writing are Rod Serling and George Orwell. Because of those influences, J.L. Pattison delights in spinning tales that not only entertains the reader, but provokes deep thought.

Although J.L. Pattison oftentimes tackles adult themes in his stories (e.g. aging, war, death), his stories remain suitable even for younger audiences because he crafts these gripping tales without the gratuitous violence, sex, and profanity commonly found in so much of today’s literature.

J.L. Pattison lives in the Western United States with his wife and children. When not writing, he enjoys fishing, rooting for his (lowly) San Francisco 49ers, and drinking copious amounts of sweet tea; an addiction he acquired while growing up in the South and isn’t willing to surrender.

What we want is not more little books about Christianity, but more little books by Christians on other subjects with their Christianity latent.”  – Clive Staples Lewis

The Christian shoemaker does his duty not by putting little crosses on the shoes, but by making good shoes.”- Martin Luther

  1. Hello, Christine.

    Thank you very much for the comment and the follow. I have set out to have a unique blog but it draws a limited niche. I’m glad you get it and are now part of that niche. I hope to continue to entertain, educate, and inform, as I continue in my dream of writing. Thanks for joinging me.


    • Thank you, Glenn, and thanks for visiting. Feel free to “follow” my blog if you wish by clicking on the follow button. Again, thanks for visiting. I hope you’ll continue to enjoy what you read here.


  2. Hello J.L Pattison. My name is Deanne and I represent Southern Breeze Sweet Tea. We are located in New Jersey and manufactured in Georgia. After your recent post about Sweet Tea, we would love to send you a sample of our sweet tea! If you are interested please provide me with your address and will send that over right away! Thank You


  3. Thank you for the offer but I do not like artificial sweeteners (nor the aftertaste of said sweeteners). If you have any products that are sweetened with sugar, I’d reconsider.


  4. We use a proprietary, premium blend of black teas that harmonize perfectly with Splenda to deliver the authentic sweet tea taste you expect without the calories or guilt. We would love to change your mind and have you try Southern Breeze Sweet Tea as we have been known to convert many sweet tea lovers to our zero calorie option.


  5. Deanna, I appreciate the offer. I really do. But even if I cannot taste the Splenda (nor the aftertaste of Splenda) in your particular product, I still do not want to drink anything with Splenda in it. When/if you guys come out with a product not using artifical sweeteners, I will surely reconsider. Thanks again.
