Patrick A. Howell is an award-winning veteran of the banking industry. He loves all things Prince, especially "Sign of the Times", believes the MCUs Black Panther may be the best film of all time (yes, even better than Godfather and Shawshank Redemption) and aspires to write as Argentinian novelist Julio Cortázar at some delicious slice of time, in some manner of being, during his life.
His early work was published in UC Berkeley’s African American Literary Journal and the Quarterly Black Book Review.
Mr. Howell's poetry book of poetry, "Yes, We Be" (Jacar Press) was soft launched during Afro-futurism month and will debut at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at USC in April. He is working on completing his experimental novel, Quarter 'til Judgment Day and is a feature editor for the Tishman Review's Craft Talk series as well as Into the Darkness out of Toronto.
He writes for the Huffington Post on business, culture... and where they intersect. Oh, and he is the exclusive columnist for the mutant known as SharkHeart, fastest human on land and in water.
