ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Patrick Doud was born in 1968 in Syracuse, New York. He grew up in Bernhards Bay, a hamlet on the northern shore of Oneida Lake, and in East Amherst, a suburb of Buffalo. After several years of academic wandering he ended up at Bard College in the Hudson Valley, where he studied literature. Three books of his poetry were published in the nineties: Girding the Ghost, The Man in Green, and Hickory Bardolino Poems. Although he continues to be involved with poetry, these days most of his attention is devoted to fantasy. He is quick to explain that there is much traffic between the two. He and his family live in Gloucester, Massachusetts, in a house near the woods, the city, and the sea.

Three years and many adventures after the events of The Hunt for the Eye of Ogin, companions Elwood, Slukee, Drallah, and Booj are charged with a task beyond Winnitok’s northern edge. Arriving in the community of a charismatic prophet, they find that Granashon the Nohar has been attempting to settle a conflict between the prophet’s followers and a proud clan of wolf truans. But this threat to peace is overshadowed by another, as an unnatural scourge of spirits is burning the prophet’s fields with a ghostly green fire.
While Granashon leads Elwood, Slukee, and a small band of others to battle the source of the spirits in an ancient mountain fortress, Drallah and Booj stay behind to help protect the besieged prophet and her followers—including a girl with whom Elwood has begun a relationship the prophet has expressly forbidden.
The companions are caught up in an intense struggle to defend the lands of the prophet and the wolf truans, and to discover and defeat the power behind the spirits before they spread to Winnitok and beyond.Patrick Doud

Patrick Doud Will Be Signing His Book Sunday At The Bookstore Of Gloucester

Patrick Doud stopped by the dock yesterday to talk about his latest published book The Hunt For The Eye Of Ogin.

Look for the video interview tonight and attend the book signing Sunday March 21, 3PM at the Bookstore of Gloucester.

It’s funny about interviews.  Sometimes I have little to no time to prepare for them and they turn out great and sometimes I prepare like crazy and they fall flat.  I’m beginning to think that I do better when I don’t prepare because I’m terrified that the interview will fall flat so my awareness and questioning ability must kick into hyperdrive.  When Patrick pulled into the driveway yesterday I didn’t really have a clue in the world about what I would fill an interview about other than knowing that his book had just been published.  As it turns out I feel like we get to know a little about Patrick, what he likes about Gloucester, The bookstore of Gloucester and the interview went pretty well IMO.

Look for the interview tonight in any case.
