Patrick Jennings

Patrick Jennings

As a kid Patrick Jennings was afraid of African black mambas and tigers. He grew up in Northwestern Indiana.

He got his first pair of glasses when he was eight, and always wished he had a nickname like his friend, Mike, who didn't need glasses. Mike was called "Tiger" by everyone, even the teachers. Wow.

Patrick Jennings encourages you to call him "Tiger," or, if you wish, "Tigersnack." Both names are hidden inside his name, as are "Rat," "Ratpick," and "Stinking Carp," none of which he wishes to be called. "Jetpack," however, is acceptable.

Before he became a professional writer, Tigersnack was a paperboy, a busboy, a fry cook, a hoddie, a record store clerk, a courier, a teacher, and a librarian. Tiger has since published twenty-three books for young readers. Can you find them somewhere on this site? He bets you can.

Jetpack's books have featured such creatures as electric dogs, rocket cats, grebes, coots, kangaroo rats, werewolves, scorpions, horses grown from seed, delphine aliens, teenagers, snakes, guinea dogs, ferrets, British shorthairs, and actors.

He's still afraid of black mambas.
