What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As a journalist, I struggled to see how young journalists strived to write scoops but I also saw that many people didn't understand the work journalists do. I wanted to address that in Behind the Scoop. I asked the question: In the age of the publishing revolution if we can tell truths and dispel falsehoods but also tell lies and spread falsehoods. What do we choose to do? Why? I hope my book can tip the balance in favor of truth, transparency and provide some much-needed news literacy in the post-truth era.

Sheltered: When a Boy Becomes a Legend by Jacob Paul Patchen

“A story that rallies your spirit and lifts your soul.”-Readers’ Favorite

“An original and compelling work of dystopian fiction.”-SPR

With America under attack from within, twelve-year-old James must fight his way to freedom while trying to hold onto his values and virtue.

“We are all given a space in life to fill, a roaring emptiness in time… and it’s how you choose to fill that void, that will determine the difference in becoming a man or a legend.”

That’s what my father said to me a few years ago before he walked out on Mom, Emily, and me. If I would have had any sense back then, I would have asked him exactly what that meant.

Instead, I’m out here learning it the hard way – dodging bullets and bombs while America is at war – my friends fighting back with all we have, while trying to keep these orphaned children safe and our dreams alive.

They call us The Risers. Well, okay… so we call ourselves “The Risers.” But either way, we’re out here doing everything we can just to survive and rise up from our nation’s ashes with honor, integrity, and justice.

Now, with smoky memories of a lost childhood, and the horrible, lingering, cardboard taste of MRE crackers (still left over from living in Dad’s bomb shelter), my mini army and me march forward, taking back what was once taken for granted.

But to be honest, I’m really just out here winging it. Wish me luck.

Targeted Age Group:: 12+

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to write a book for teens that weren't into reading. Growing up, I hated to read. I'd rather be outside playing army, climbing trees, or basically doing something that I shouldn't be. Having quite the imagination, I would often imagine what my life might be like if America was at war, and I had to fight for my freedom in my own backyard. So this is for all the pre-teen, rowdy Jakes of the world who would rather have been playing army in the backyard instead of being stuck inside reading a stupid book.

To celebrate the launch of my author website and blog, The Last Noah is on promotion until at least the end of February, at 99¢ for the kindle edition and $9.95 for the paperback. (Similar reductions apply in other currencies.)
It's “a unique take on the sci-fi genre which throws questions at you from the word go” and “a fine addition to anyone’s book collection who loves a fast-moving sci-fi adventure”.

Robin and Miranda go to bed in their separate rooms, but wake up somewhere else. Somewhere that is alien and way outside their comfort zone. However, as they discover more about their new surroundings and have several unusual and action-packed adventures, they begin to suspect that all may not be as it first seemed. As the days progress, their passion for each other grows as their relationship develops emotionally and physically. However, is someone or something watching them? Why do they keep discovering things that don’t feel right? And what’s the story behind the various androids who they meet during their adventures?

As well as being a fast-moving science fiction action and adventure novel, this book touches on several social topics. Covert surveillance; humanity’s journey after the extinction of Earth; how AI might develop; and whether humans would, one day, upload their minds into robots (and, if so, what sort of society might result?)

In space, nobody is watching your reality. Or are they? Follow the mysterious adventures of our two unwilling space travellers, and discover what is really going on…
