by Patrick R. Field


GENRE:   Paranormal Fantasy



Not long after their move into Blackstone, married couple Mitch and Buck begin to witness strange sightings of shadowy figures, physical manifestations and inexplicable events taking place in the former Sheppard family estate nestled in the Northern Poconos of Pennsylvania. Through séances, they learn from the spirit of Jedidiah Sheppard that he has not been able to cross over into the afterlife because the truth behind his sudden disappearance in 1965 has never been solved. During this journey, Mitch and Buck and an eccentric psychic, Gladys Munch aka Madame Fortunesta, encounter interference from the spirit of a Lenape medicine man, Mesingwe Medeu, who protects Jedidiah’s spirit. Mitch and Buck eventually realize that they must find Jedidiah’s remains and let the authorities discover through modern detective work the evidence needed to try and convict the murderer. But is it too late for Jedidiah’s spirit to find eternal peace?



Unexpectedly, the bleeding spirit floating above us ascends higher into the air and begins to fluoresce. A whitish glow emanates from Jedidiah’s form as if the full moon were reflecting on it from a transparent ceiling. His presence illuminates the entire gallery. Then without warning, the fluorescent spirit catapults itself through the largest window facing the lake, the illuminating mass rocketing toward the body of water. Once we realize what is happening, Buck and I stand quickly and run toward the window the ghost soared through (as if the physical presence of the structure did not exist) to watch the trajectory. From the middle of the lake, a hot white glow radiates and ripples, as if the energy source is underwater and the rays of light are emanating through a watery filter.

“He is showing us where his body is,” Gladys states, startling us, as she stands next to us. Her trance was broken by the departure of the host and our broken circle.

How do you know?” Buck innocently asks.

“What else could it be?” Gladys replies.

The glow gathers and rises above the water. Within seconds, the fluorescent mass soars back toward the shore, coming back to Blackstone. Quickly, we re-assemble ourselves into our positions at the table, realigning our circle of hands, watching as the glowing ethereal cloud passes through the windowpanes and settles to hover above the table once again. The mass attains the shape of the specter of a beautiful, wounded youth.



After twenty-five years in higher education, Patrick Field traded in teaching and textbooks to pursue his passion of writing spine-chilling fiction. Holding a Ph.D. in Anatomical Sciences and Neuroscience, his experience informs his writing, a unique blend of scientific knowledge with supernatural storytelling.

His non-scientific writing career began with Prince Patrick, a memoir of his precocious childhood that he wrote for his mother as she battled pancreatic cancer. This process was not only healing but helpful in stirring his creativity and marked the moment he was bitten by the writing bug.

An avid fan of Anne Rice, Edgar Allen Poe, and Joe Hill, Patrick’s subsequent novels were inspired by his favorite authors. His first fiction novel, The Malevolent, and his two latest novels, The Bedfordshire Warlock (release date in early 2024) and Servant were written throughout the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic.

His latest novel Servant was inspired by the supernatural events that happened to the author, his husband, and friends that have stayed in their home in northeastern Pennsylvania. Taking a page from his teaching philosophy that those who teach must never cease to learn, Patrick found himself hungry to discover all he could about the area's diverse cultures, including the Anthracite coal mining community and the indigenous tribe of the Lenape.

Patrick’s writing process is a mix between walking meditation and meticulous research. His novels form while he walks alone with his dogs, imagining plot lines and characters. Once he’s home, he quickly types notes on his computer before fleshing them out later. Research is a considerable part of his process- the scientist in him abhors “alternative facts.” When he encounters an idea or a historical thread unfamiliar to him, he researches all he can about it. While he writes about a world where the supernatural realm is prominent, the real world is always based on facts.

When developing characters, he usually has an idea of the destination he wants for each character but the journey to get there is often written by the character and the environment. Of all the characters he’s written, Gladys Munch in Servant is his favorite, as she’s an amalgam of delightful, humorous “mature” ladies in his life and physically inspired by British actresses Margaret Rutherford and Angela Lansbury.

In addition to writing, Patrick appears on the stage of his community theater and sings in the chorus of a local opera company each summer. He enjoys spending time with his husband, Matthew, and their dogs and exploring new destinations around the world, especially those that have a supernatural history. Haunted buildings and structures associated with the occult fascinate Patrick. His idea of a perfect day: drinking pints of Guinness draught with friends and family over scintillating and humorous conversation.

  1. Hello! This is Patrick R. Field and I am so excited to be on FAB for my book tour! Here is my question for the day: Anthracite, the "Blackstone" coal the Sheppard family in Servant become rich from is part of the legendary "black vein" that extends from Pennsylvania under the Atlantic Ocean seabed and into what country that is part of Great Britain? Hint:it is the country featured in the movie "Pride." Can't wait to read y'all's comments today!
