Patrick Johns is a wordsmith who grew up in Ramsey, New Jersey where he played for hours in his basement with his dinosaurs and out back in his woods with his imaginary friends in imaginary worlds. He has been writing since he was young, creating worlds and drawing the made up characters within them. His imagination was put on hold while in college.

Patrick is a recent graduate from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!). He graduated with a degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering and a second degree in Mathematics. He has done very well for himself and is currently living in the Washington D.C. area. Patrick never forgot his imaginary friends, however.

Upon graduation, Patrick’s wonderful parents took him to see Aladdin on Broadway, one of his favorite childhood stories. And yes, it is his dream to one day soar high into a diamond sky on a magic carpet, singing a beautiful duet with someone he just met and fell madly in love with. After the play, Patrick’s creativity sparked and he returned to writing to make this dream come true for everyone.

Junkland is his first novel, and is now available on Amazon. The second novel in The Hoarding series is underway, with the third soon to follow.
