“Pattison definitely delivered a twisted, adventurous, piece of brainwork.”

Reader, Bonnie Madrigal

J.L. Pattison delights in spinning tales that not only entertains the reader, but provokes deep thought. That’s why his stories have resonated with readers as being reminiscent of The Twilight Zone, and it’s also why he’s been favorably compared to both Rod Serling and M. Night Shyamalan.

Although he oftentimes tackles heavy themes in his books (e.g. aging, war, death), J.L. Pattison’s stories remain suitable for younger readers because he crafts his thought-provoking and gripping tales without the gratuitous violence, sex, and profanity commonly found in so much of today’s literature. Many readers will find this a breath of fresh air.

“It’s rare to find a book that has a gritty and compelling storyline without using sex, language, and violence, but Pattison pulls it off. “

Reader, Dan Ruben

J.L. Pattison lives in the Wild West of the United States with his wife and children. When not writing, he enjoys fishing, football, and family. He also has an an affinity for lattes (an addiction he acquired in San Francisco) and sweet tea (an addiction he acquired in South Florida).

“Returning to Pattison’s writing is like returning to an old friend. It makes me want to read more [books] like this. Pattison’s books are the kind that really remind you why you love reading.”

Book Reviewer, Olivia Emily

  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.


    1. 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.
