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.
