Crimson Cloak Publishing Releases Memories and imagination by Patrick Shanahan
St. Louis, Missouri, USA, June 16, 2015 – Crimson Cloak Publishing is pleased to announce its latest title, Memories and Imagination by Patrick Shanahan. Memories and Imagination, Shanahan's fourth book, is a collection of fast-paced tales that includes cold case detective dramas full of unexpected (though plausible) twists and turns alongside warm-hearted stories about lost love found, as well as playful snapshots of daily life, reminiscences, and chance encounters. Itwas released on June 16th, 2015.
"In Imagination and Memories, Shanahan demonstrates his skill as a master raconteur," says Crimson Cloak Publishing President Carly McCracken. "He doesn't so much tell a story as he weaves it from plot threads that may start in the 1940s and reconnect 50 years later, making him an expert in the cold case story One such powerful piece is 'The Treasure of Washio Reservoir,' in which the gritty details of the case, including a missing armored car, come together like pieces in a puzzle, yet still leaving room for a surprise ending that will keep the reader's head nodding and face smiling."
"From story to story, Shanahan has the gift of being able to switch gears, tone and style," adds Crimson Cloak Publishing Senior Editor Veronica Castle, "from sharing hard-nosed justice in a revenge story like 'Don't Take it From Me' to playful silliness in 'Coaching the Kids,' about a father's challenges as he attempts to coach his daughter's softball team. In short, there is something for everyone in this wide-ranging collection."
Born in Chicago, the second of thirteen children, Shanahan has been writing novels and short stories for 40 years. His works include human interest pieces, children's stories, short stories and three full length novels. His favorite genre is crime fiction. His articles and short stories have appeared in numerous newsletters, newspapers, and national magazines for the past eight years. Married for 50 years to his wife, Sandra, Shanahan has three adult children and three grandchildren. He currently lives in rural Missouri.
When asked which are his favorite stories, he shrugs and says, "As my mother often commented when asked who her favorite child is, 'They're all my favorite.'"
