Patrick S. Tomlinson is a man of many hats. In addition to writing Sci-Fi novels (Gate Crashers, Starship Repo) and shorts, he prowls theaters, clubs, and bars throughout the midwest performing as a stand-up comedian. Between gigs, cons, and rewrites, he works as a pundit and frequent political contributor, with columns appearing in publications such as The Hill and The New York Times. In the little downtime remaining, Patrick enjoys hobbies such as motorcycling, model-building, and shooting. He lives in Milwaukee with his wife, two cats, a bearded dragon, and a 2008 Bullitt Edition Mustang named Susan.
