Thin Wood Walls, 2004

Biographical Sketch

David Patneaude was born January 2, 1944, in St. Paul, Minnesota. He now lives in Woodinville, Washington. He made his name as a children's book author with creepy, suspenseful tales. Sometimes they feature supernatural forces and sometimes purely human wrongdoers. His first published book, Someone Was Watching , falls into the latter category. Patneaude states that the book "is a mystery/adventure, but it's also about love and responsibility and commitment and the importance of believing in yourself." With Thin Wood Walls , published in 2004, he branches out into a new genre: historical fiction. The book follows Japanese-American boy Joe Handa, as his family tries to cope with prejudice against people of Japanese ancestry during World War II.
