About the Author

pat_rizioIn his twenties, Patrick Rizio was on the road playing drums with several different bands. He started with rock and progressed into jazz. He worked for years as a journeyman cement mason, Local 502 business agent, and as a field representative for the Operative Plasterers and Cement Masons International Union. He loves travel, dogs, music, and tennis.
After growing up reading authors like Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov, he now includes Brian Green, Michio Kaku, and Bill Nye among his favorites. Suffering from a lifelong addiction to science fiction and science books, he is a self-admitted science nerd. He feels strongly that science is not only humanity’s clearest path to a better future, but that it is inherently tied to our evolution as a species. LaCost: The Evolution of Jason is his first novel.
