Hello fellow Maniacs,
My name is Pat Ferrara, an avid writer and lover of all things sci-fi and fantasy. In addition to writing the Weekly Book Buzz and other book-related features here at Mania.com, I also write film reviews at WorldofKJ.com and work as a freelance author on original and collaborative genre content.
I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a BS in Biology & Chemistry and a BA in Film Studies & Studio Arts. Some of my long-term goals include working in the field of Systems Biology, writing and producing films, and building my own castle.
Some of my hobbies include watching far too much television and collecting medieval weaponry.
