Patrick Middleton began writing and publishing short stories and poetry during his undergraduate college years at the University of Pittsburgh. After earning his Bachelor’s degree in English (summa cum laude) in 1984, Patrick went on to graduate school where his writing skills caught the eye of a prominent psychology professor, who invited Patrick to assist him in writing the second edition of an experimental psychology textbook. Upon completion of the textbook project, Patrick wrote the test battery and instructor’s manual for the second and third editions of the textbook.
Patrick was born in Washington, D.C., and grew up in the Southern Maryland town of La Plata. He has been incarcerated in Pennsylvania since 1975. From 1978-1990, he was a full-time student at the University of Pittsburgh and the recipient of several distinguished fellowships and teaching awards. In 1984, he earned his Master’s Degree in Language Communication and in 1990, he became the first and only prisoner in America to earn all his higher education degrees behind bars in a classroom setting, including a Ph.D.
For several years he taught English and Psychology courses in the University of Pittsburgh’s undergraduate program. More recently, from 2007 to 2010, he was an adjunct faculty member at Villanova University. He was the senior editor for SageWriters Publishing from 2002 to 2012. He has been a professional editor since 1985.
Patrick is the author of two highly acclaimed nonfiction books, Healing Our Imprisoned Minds, and Incorrigible, A Memoir. Eureka Man is his first novel.
When Patrick isn’t writing, his time is spent mentoring other writers, playing bass guitar or reading.
