Patrick Welch received a B.A. and M.A. in English from Bowling Green State University. While in college he published his first fiction in university publications, Riverside Quarterly and Analog. He basically stopped writing fiction for 20 years while doing freelance articles and advertising work for Toledo area markets. During that time he also taught special needs children, sold insurance, was an assistant retail manager, a guitar teacher, full and part-time musician and advertising copywriter.
The Internet helped bring him back to fiction writing roughly four years ago. He has placed more than 40 stories in e-zine and small press magazines and published five e-books. Besides Westchester Station, he has The Thirteenth Magician and The Casebook of Doakes and Haig currently available.
He is divorced and lives with his growing collection of musical instruments and empty beer cans.
