Steven Van Patten is a native New Yorker, raised in Fort Greene and currently living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. ‘SVP’ describes himself as an insomniac with an overactive imagination and a lover of things that go bump in the night. He’s quoted as saying that, “I love horror movies, but I am not always crazy about how people of color are depicted or handled within the horror genre. My list of complaints goes on forever, from the stereotypical slang-talker who is dead before the credits are over to the fact that Blade goes for an entire trilogy of movies without the main character attaining a true love interest.”
This is probably why after coming home from his exhausting experiences stage managing various TV shows throughout the New York area, he was motivated to stay up all hours of the night writing the Brookwater’s Curse vampire novel series. Because of his extensive work in both the television and literary fields, he’s now a member of both the Director’s Guild of America and The Horror Writer’s Association.
The Brookwater’s Curse books are a combination of many things the author loves, all pulled together to create a very dark, very adult, supernatural vision. He is currently working on, “The Genius” a somewhat futuristic, multi-cultural take on the serial killer genre.
JT Patten has worked integrally with U.S. Army Special Forces groups in intelligence training and operational intelligence support, this Veteran’s Day, Patten will be donating book sales to the Green Beret Foundation.
In a brief conversation with Patten about the Green Beret Foundation, J.T. stated, “Green berets have been perhaps my favorite SOF group to work with. For as much as I have had the opportunity to train and support them, they have mentored me, taught me, and included me with their team family on numerous occasions. Those members and my experiences with them have inspired many of the story scenes that I write. Despite my writings being fictional (and approved by the CIA and DOD for release), I feel that I need to give something back to that community. In Shadow Masters, there is a powerful scene that involves the loss of a special forces warrior and the ripple effects that many readers don’t realize can happen in the real world. It still gives me a lump in the throat to read.” The root of that segment, again, highly fictionalized according to Patten, was actually taken from Patten’s experience as a youth, which inspired him to seek a career with intelligence and special activities.

When the stars looked like they were going to align, and the Buffalo Bills were going to the playoffs for the first time in over a decade, they fall to the 2-12 Oakland Raiders 26-24, and the streak that began in 1999 continues. The Bills (8-7) are out of the playoffs, so what should they do in their final game of the 2014 season? Should EJ Manuel get the start? Will we see Nathaniel Hackett "open up" the playbook for him if he does get the start? All those questions and many more will be answered on a brand new life episode of Hashtag Sports, your social media sports talk station.

Tonight, join Soaps In Depth executive editor Richard Simms in a spirited debate about all things soap. First, we’ll look at why DAYS OF OUR LIVES’ recently-deceased EJ needs to remain really, most sincerely dead. Then, we’ll look at the return of romance to GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Port Charles… and why when it comes to triangles, the more the merrier. With THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS gearing up for both Adam’s return and headwriter Chuck Pratt’s arrival, we’ll discuss our hopes — and fears — for Genoa City’s future. And we’ll ask why THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, a show that gets so much right, seems to get one thing wrong… a lot.
