Welcome to my homepage and blog!
My name is Patrick W. Marsh, and I’m the author of the self-published novel Beware the Ills and the book series the Greenland Diaries. I’ve also released four short story anthologies. I have studied creative writing at three different colleges, been blogging for a decade, and been traditionally published in a variety of literary magazines. I’m a father of four boys. My wife is a photographer and plant enthusiast.
My books are dark fantasy, science fiction, and horror. Some stories are told straight from me in my voice. Others are journals of survivors, or the perspectives of the abominations themselves. I always tell people who read my writing that If you like a good monster, this fiction is right up your alley. Stories with monsters have always been the most interesting to me. They could be a shadow hanging on a streetlight in a plant-warped apocalypse. They could be a lonely killer on a cursed island powered by a phantom force. They could be a god-like demon locked in deep space counting constellations. Monsters are what mainly interest me as a writer, artist, and storyteller. In my books and through my stories, I build monsters to understand what it is to be human.
This has been quite a journey for me. I have revised, restarted, and reset my writing career multiple times, because success has been elusive, and my confidence wanes constantly. I’m not sure what victory even is for me, I just know that I need to keep writing.
