About the author
Patrick is a writer and expedition guide. He's led trips through the Andes and Himalayas, and guided drunk Australians through Europe, but he considers his greatest achievement to be meeting Paris Hilton at Highpoint Shopping Centre. He writes about travel and wine and occasionally indulges in both, while his own short story 'Blitzkrieg' was awarded the Stuart Hadow Short Story Prize in 2020. He now introduces himself at parties as an award-winning writer; just kidding; he doesn’t get invited to any parties.
