Patrick Warner was born and raised in Claremorris, Co. Mayo, Ireland.
He moved to Newfoundland in 1980 in search of better weather and economic prosperity. Bitterly disappointed on both counts, he turned to poetry, penning three critically acclaimed collections between 2001 and 2009. Double talk is his first novel. He currently lives in downtown St. John’s with his wife, Rochelle, and two daughters, Annie and Greta.
