Patrick is an award-winning  writer, photographer, and artist. He has been writing for over twenty years.


Patrick Witz has from his youth always been fascinated with science, strange discoveries, technology, earth and other worldly places presented in National Geographic and Popular Mechanics. He is a steadfast believer that knowledge and imagination are a powerful combination and readily admits he will forever be a student of the arts, be it creative writing, photograph, or any other artistic interest or endeavor.

In his writing, Patrick likes to blend genres and his eclectic nature leads him into a labyrinth of fictional paths. Patrick’s writing goal is to bring his written words to life in reader’s minds… therein to strum reader’s emotional cords; sculpt intriguing characters; create captivating dialogue; and word-paint intricate colorful settings. One can say Patrick’s diversity is the spice of his writing – sometimes sweet, every now and again bitter, often mixed with a sprinkle of humor, a pinch of peculiar flavor, and finished off with an emotional or unsuspecting twist.

It is with great hope that you will enjoy reading Patrick’s cocktail of short fiction:

  • Mix well a flavorful blend of humanity, nature, space and time,
  • Add generous amounts of imagination and creativity,
  • Then serve it with an unforeseen tangy twist.
