About Eliot Pattison

Eliot Pattison has been described as a “writer of faraway mysteries,” a title especially apt for someone whose travels and interests have taken him to every continent except Antarctica.

Pattison, an international lawyer by training, first combined his concern for Tibet’s people with his interest in fiction writing in The Skull Mantra, which launched the Inspector Shan series.

Throughout the world, the series has been translated into over twenty languages. Amazon.com selected The Skull Mantra and Water Touching Stone as its top ten new mysteries for 2017. According to Booksense, Water Touching Stone is the number one mystery of all time. The latest installment, Soul of Fire, was named a “Best Book of 2014” by Publisher’s Weekly.

A fascination with the 18th century American wilderness and its woodland Indians led Patterson to write his critically acclaimed Bone Rattler series.

His dystopian novel, Ashes of The Earth, is the first entry in his post-apocalyptic American book series.

As a former resident of Boston and Washington, Pattison now resides on an 18th century farm in Pennsylvania with his wife, three children, and an ever-expanding zoo.
