J.R. Patterson was born in Manitoba in 1989 and raised on a beef and grain farm on the Canadian prairies. His experiences as a farm labourer, factory worker, and musician inform much of his writing. 

When not writing, he enjoys flying single-engine planes, paddling his folding kayak, and drinking wine.
