Dave Patton

     Thirty years in the Fire service, and was also a union official, which involved writing letters, pamphlets. Travel all over the UK and abroad and took to writing short stories while travelling, waiting, travelling and more waiting.
     Was chatting to an old friend who introduced me to the good people over at the Rum Shack in Glasgow where they did a monthly performance…plays, monologues etc. and after having a few of my pieces performed and meeting up online with the amazing Vivian Lermond, she prodded, cajoled, and bullied me into sending stuff off to various other venues.
     And so, now I’m here, in Michigan writing short plays and monologues mostly.
