The Author

Pat started writing after his wife was diagnosed with brain cancer and he became her primary caregiver for about 5 years until Angela passed away.

Pat’s books are more than a tribute to his wife’s courage. They are a wonderful exploration of how the life of the family members who choose to become caregivers for a terminally ill loved one change forever in a day and how they go on a journey of self-discovery during the course of the care they give.
