Welcome to my website

Hello, I'm Joshua M. Patton, and this is the hub for all of my written work available in print and online. I started writing as a teenager, landing my first gig writing the Saturday "Welcome Message" on the "Teens" section of America Online. (Ask your parents, kids.) I spent the majority of my writing career, over 20 years, focusing on news reporting and political analysis. Of course, I covered political campaigns. However, I also covered policy and governance, as well as the rise of a fact-averse branch of political commentary. I also reported on the police beat, and covered veterans issues, since I am also a veteran of the US Army. Today, my work focuses primarily on entertainment, specifically critical engagement and analysis, often about genre stories.
