Author of the Day

R.J. Patterson
While growing up in a military family, R.J. Patterson spent some of his formative years living with his family on the estate of an English baron and baroness. It was there that he developed his passion for good literature. After winning numerous awards for his writing and journalistic work, Patterson left journalism full-time to pursue writing books and now resides in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and four children. He plans to write many more thrilling novels unless the CIA presses him into service to save the world. As our Author of the Day, Patterson tells us everything about his Brady Hawk Box Set.
