Patrick Vanner

Patrick Vanner


Patrick A. Vanner was born into a Marine family, and, after attending Penn State University, majoring in aerospace and electrical engineering, he enlisted in the Marine Corps like his parents before him. After a successful military tour, he earned a degree in network administration and began a career in telecommunications and information technology. He divides his time between working, reading, writing, gaming and spending an exorbitant amount of money on anime, giving truth to the saying, "Anime, it's more addictive than crack". Patrick currently lives with the love of his life, Heather, and six insane cats that make their lives interesting in every sense of the ancient Chinese curse.
