After returning to the US, author Patterson began working in the field of journalism. He won several writing awards during his journalism career.

After a few years of working as a journalist, he left the field to focus on his next career of writing books on a full time basis. As of today, he is happily married and resides with his loving wife and 4 children in Pacific Northwest. Author Patterson ha plans for writing many more suspense novels in the years to come. He was born in Mesa, Arizona, United States, and became interested in writing from a very young age. Patterson says that he received a lot of influence from the popular works of authors such as Harper Lee, Brad Meltzer, Joh Grisham, Matthew Pearl, and Lee Child. It was his English teacher who motivated him to write articles after she was impressed by his writing in the first grade.

While living in South Carolina during his teenage years, Patterson’s father used to tell him that he could watch sports if he wants, but on the condition that he will have to write about it later. Patterson’s father was even willing to pay him for watching sports with the intention that he would pay attention to the details and then help himself in polishing his writing skills. This benefitted author Patterson a lot as he got a writing job in a daily newspaper in his town by the time he reached the age of 16. He had also started writing a column on the players of Major League Baseball from his area. Patterson even covered the first riot of his career during a sporting event. Later, author Patterson went on to complete his graduation from a leading journalism school in the country. Following this, he was employed in South Georgia on the post of a sports editor. This job allowed him to get the first hand experience of the high school sports passion in the rural America. Patterson realized that there was a whole new world of sports, that he thought he knew, but actually didn’t. Author Patterson even received the chance to cover some of the major sports events like the World Series, the Final Four, the Olympics, and the Super Bowl. He was thrilled with all these opportunities. However, nothing seemed as thrilling to author Patterson as uncovering the realities in the investigative assignments. His story about the NCAA violation by a football and the subsequent investigation about the suicide of the violating coach won him a national award. A few other similar instances made Patterson realize that the world of sports was also a fantastic setup of drama. After years of writing nonfiction as well as ghostwriting for several others, Patterson decided to start writing fiction. He has said that it was something that he wanted to for a long time, but really found any time. As for his writing is concerned, Patterson does not intend to reach the heights a bestselling author, but only wishes to tell a nice story that is appreciated by the readers.
