Patrick Weill’s mother reports that he started reading at two years of age and that one of his early favorites was a lawnmower catalog. His recollection of those events is foggy at best.
Fictional tales of courageous deeds have always played a vital part in his life. Weill remembers bedtime superhero stories told to him by his parents as a child, and summers spent sprawled out on the couch with a stack of books from the library. Favorite series included The Three Investigators, The Hardy Boys, Choose Your Own Adventure, and books by Agatha Christie and Clive Cussler.
Later moving on to works by authors including Lee Child, John Grisham, Arthur Conan Doyle, Dan Brown, Ian Fleming, and David Baldacci, Weill has made a living as a lifeguard, a saxophonist, a teacher, and now as an award-winning translator and author.
Pat was surprised to find himself lost in the pleasure of creating stories. He hopes and believes that you, too, will find solace and excitement in his work.
