Patrick Stokes

Malaga, Spain

I have been writing poetry as a journal for my travels which have taken me from the UK to Spain via the West Coast of America, Alaska, Mexico and the Caribbean over the past fifteen years. Now settled in Southern Spain I wrote my first story some five years ago followed by my first full blown novel earlier this year. At present I am working on a new venture of eight short stories.

I lead a busy life running a lovely restaurant with the writing providing the 'wind down' from work. My novel is based loosely on my travels charting the life of Finn Wallace a disturbed gay man. Generally I would like to take my literary ambition further as I believe the messages in the book are clear and relevant even though it is a fictional piece. The second book will have wider appeal as it is based on true characters seen from an oblique perspective.

I am fifty years old with the energy of someone in their twenties much to the distraction of my partner!!

Interests: Writing, following most sports from the armchair, walking on the beaches here in Southern Spain. Travel
