Patrick Ridings enjoyed writing long before receiving his English BA from the University of Scranton. He attempts to remain creative with varying degrees of success. His first published work appeared in the June/July 2012 issue of Philly Beer Scene. Mr. Ridings believes all writer bios sound like Stan Lee’s Dr. Doom dialogue from 1962. Read “Introduction to Tangential Writing” and “Secret (Word) Origins” to see his intent and inspiration for Tangents.
