Patrick O’Riley, a very unusual fellow, studied creative writing at the University of New Mexico. He worked on the Mike Douglas show, picked tomatoes in Montana and peaches in South Carolina, pan handled in downtown LA and has spent his life writing about his experiences. He said this about his own work: “I can't think of my past without the spirit of Gabriel saying "This is boring, juice it up a little by telling about your life with the six anarchist Mexican midgets." O’Riley lives in Hurley, New Mexico.
