I believe that my purpose as a storyteller
is simply to write a good novel that people will
remember long after they’ve read the last page."


Ernesto Patino grew up in El Paso where he graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso. He received a Bachelor of Music degree and taught school for a couple of years before joining the FBI as a Special Agent. His career spanned 23 years, most of which were spent in South Florida. He now lives in Arizona, and divides his time between writing and working as a private investigator. He is a member of the International Thriller Writers Organization (ITW).

When Ernesto is not working as a P.I. or writing a book, you can usually find him at a local dance studio where he continually strives to perfect his skills as a ballroom dancer.
