I’m Grant Patterson

The Grant Patterson symbol of a G and P combined in a circle.

I’m a writer, webmaster, SEO strategist, communications and social media manager, and game designer. I recently graduated from the liberal art school, Taylor University, with a Bachelor of Science in Professional Writing. My education allowed me to grow not only as a writer but in all the avenues that writing could take me.

Over the years I have done a variety of things for a variety of purposes. Below is a wide collection of the things that I am most proud of and my commentary on them. Though I will not publish full stories here (as I might publish them again in a few years), I will talk about the contents of the stories and provide links to full articles if available.
