About Patrick Goodman
Well, if you've come this far, maybe you really do want to know about me.
My name's Patrick Goodman, and I'm a Texan. You might have noticed this already, but just in case you didn't, I thought I'd point it out. I was born in the town of Amarillo on 2 April 1966; at the time, there was a U.S. Air Force base here. That's where my father was stationed at the time. I suppose it's just as well; I could have been born a couple years later when he was stationed at Minot AFB, ND, like my sister was. Considering how much I hate snow, that would have been a pretty darn bad deal all around.
I spent time in the USAF myself, and lived all over the world. I don't really like living any place but Texas, so I think I'm just going to stay here for a while unless I get a phenomenal offer elsewhere.
I got into role-playing games in 1980, and I've pretty much been hooked ever since. What this says about me is up to other people to decide; I just know that it's been a part of me for so long that it would be a lot like losing a limb if I didn't have it around. I've also been writing for most of the time I've been gaming, though I've only gotten serious about it in the last couple of years.
Since I got serious about things, I've managed to get myself published. It started, of course, with the weight article all those years ago, but then things started getting weird.
So far, all of my freelancing has been for Shadowrun, but I'm not averse to the idea of writing for a different game someday if the opportunity and desire are there. So far, though, it hasn't come up, so I'm gonna keep working on Shadowrun for the time being, especially now that we've got a publisher and all that happy stuff.
All this hard work recently got me my very first interview, which can be found on the Helix; here's a direct link to the interview.
