My name is Terry Patrick and I grew up on the mean streets of luxurious Palm Springs, Ca. As a young boy growing up in an alcoholic family I quickly learned escapism through books and my writing. There was a lot of love and joy in my childhood home as well as hate, anger and violence. I stepped on that tight wire and walked it with great skill. I lost my virginity at 11, began drinking at 12, used drugs at 13, joined the boy scouts at 14, joined a street gang at 15, wrote volumes of poetry at 16, fell in love at 17, saw my brother get murdered in cold blood at 18, became a villian at 19, and changed my life by the age of 20.
I'm now a motivational speaker, spoken word poet, writing workshop facilitator and published author of the gospel suspense novel, Skeletons in the Closet-You're only as Sick as Your Secrets (ISBN 978-0-9884066-0-5 ).
