Desperate to get home to her family, Georgina and a handful of survivors must find a way to escape an uncharted island… while fighting off hordes of the living dead.

Praise for “Mercy”:

“Joshua Grover-David Patterson writes in a style that will surely connect with many contemporary zombie fans. His use of tone and narrative structure are miles ahead of most who work in the genre.”
-Scott Kenemore, author of “Zombie, Ohio” and “The Zen of Zombie.”

“You expect a zombie novel to have brains, but you don’t expect it to be this smart. You expect a number of internal organs to be on display, but you don’t expect this much heart. MERCY is a kicka** zombie novel, but it’s also a thoughtful, moving story about the joy and importance of being human and alive.”
-Seamus Cooper, author of “The Mall of Cthulhu”

Baby Teeth: A Blood Calling Novelette

When a father discovers his newborn has been turned into a vampire, he’s forced to make a choice: Hide his child’s secret… or end his family line.





Blood Calling

When Lucy Leary turned 18, her life fell apart. She crashed her car, her best friend abandoned her, her parents divorced, and her grandfather passed away, leaving her a single possession: A vampire slaying kit with a note that said, “THEY’RE REAL. FIGHT THEM.”

Now Lucy must stop the oldest, most dangerous vampire in history, before it can kill her family.

Praise for “Blood Calling”:

“Lucy finding out about her grandfather’s secret life as a vampire hunter is one thing. Being forced to take it over is quite another. But take it over she does… in style. With ‘Blood Calling’ author Joshua Grover-David Patterson has created a smart and believable heroine who would make Buffy proud. 5 stars, especially if he writes a sequel — fast!”
-Gabryyl Vaughan – (

“As the story unfolds and both Lucy and the reader learn more about the world of vampires, both good and bad, the characters begin to come alive right off the page, making this a must read novel. I highly recommend this novel, especially for any vampire lovers out there. Four Stars.”
-A Book Vacation – (

Joshua’s Cause:

Ethiopia Reads (

On July 28th, 2007, my wife and I arrived in Ethiopia and met our little girl. She was six months old, 12 pounds, and the most beautiful baby we had ever seen. I wept the moment I met her. (There’s video.)

Through our adoption journey, I learned about both the good and the bad of Ethiopia. The amazing food, the incredible culture, how the very history of mankind is tied to the country where my child was born.

And I learned about the abject poverty: The average person in Ethiopia lives on 125 dollars a year.

Then I became aware of a man named Yohannes Gebregeorgis.

You can look him up if you want to know more, but the thumbnail sketch of Gebregeorgis is that he was born in Ethiopia, and then immigrated to the United States in 1982. He got his masters degree in library science, and took a job at the San Francisco public library as the children’s librarian.

When he was unable to locate any children’s books that had been published in Amharic, the primary language of Ethiopia, he took it upon himself to write and publish one.

In 1998, he founded Ethiopia Reads. Its mission? “To create a reading culture in Ethiopia by connecting children with books.” In 2002, he moved back to Ethiopia, and has since established 10 libraries, including mobile library carts that are hauled to rural areas by a donkey.

As a father of an Ethiopian child who values reading, education, and the country of his daughter’s birth, I decided to help fund this important work. And so, as of July 1st, 2011, 10% of my book profits each month go to Ethiopia Reads.
