After a successful career in the aerospace industry Pat Wiley began his second career as a writer at the New School for Creative Writing. A series of short stories followed about his adventures sailing his boat on a two year, three thousand-mile journey to the islands of the Caribbean and South America. From this journey, he wrote his first novel EYEWITNESS, A Jack Quinn Novel (a nautical murder mystery).
The Sinking of the MV Le JOOLA: Africa’s Titanic is his first publication. The non-fiction narrative is the result of two-years of research into one of the worst maritime tragedies in recorded history–a tragedy, which tore at the soul of a country. His interviews with survivors and extensive in-country research revealed the shameful loss of life and incredible accounts of survival that form the heart of the book.
Pat is a licensed Captain and resides in Flat Rock, North Carolina with his wife, an accomplished painter and sculptor.
