I’m falling for my space pirate boss, but rogue aliens are after him—and now me.
It is a simple job. Sneak aboard a pirate spaceship and steal a precious artifact from the brooding, too-hot captain, Matis. Before I know it, I’ll be on my way back to Earth with enough credits to cure my mom’s sickness.
Is it my fault I accidentally stab him? Instead of making me walk the interstellar plank, he makes me serve as his cabin boy. Good thing he doesn’t realize I’m not a boy.
His snarly outside hides a squishy center, but someone’s out to kill him, and who needs to get tangled up in that? Then we’re trapped on a rogue space station with alien pirates trying to kill us.
He discovers my secret. He says we’ll escape—and then he’s claiming me as his fated mate.
Pirating the Alien is book 7 of the Beastly Alien Boss Series of interconnected standalones that can be listened to in any order. Expect strong women and heroes who are battle-ready, who talk dirty, and who will do everything to be with their fated mates.

Harnessing a childhood steeped in storytelling and a deep love of the written word, with over 600 titles (and growing) under my belt, I always strive to bring a wide range of characters to vibrant, compelling life, allowing for total immersion in the story. I want you to feel the real world melt away as you engage with my work, whatever the genre, whether it's on the lighter side (cozy mysteries, LitRPG, comedic paranormal romance) or the darker desires (reverse harem, steamy dystopia, sci-fi thrillers) and everything in between. Currently on the rosters of multiple major publishers like Podium, Tantor and ACX, I’ve worked with authors around the world. I’m proficient in a variety of accents, am a member of SAG/AFTRA, have won multiple independent awards, including the IAA for Horror 2019, and am constantly working to expand my repertoire across the spectrum of incredible works available. I’ve studied with some of the best in the industry, including Paul Meier and Pat Fraley, and am always studying new techniques to enhance my performance. I’m proficient in a wide range of accents and dialects, including UK, French, German, Russian, Irish, Scottish, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, and Eastern/Southern US. Working from my home studio, using top-of-the-line equipment, I always provide crisp, clear audio with editing and proofing to ensure a distraction free listening experience.

With well over a hundred titles under his belt spanning genres from STEM and Biography to Eco-Thriller Heists and Alien Romance, Patrick’s insatiable curiosity, fascination with the human condition and facility with dialects have provided a fantastic fit for him in the audiobook industry. Patrick holds a BFA in Theatre from Emerson College and an MFA in Dramatic Arts from the University of San Diego. In addition to Audiobook Narration he has worked professionally in Theatre, Film and Television for over 20 years and was both thrilled and honored to pick up his first SOVAS award in 2021 for the full cast recording of T.J. London’s _The Traitor_. You may also recognize him from his recurring character, hot-head Joey Novak, on _General Hospital_. Shooting and recording schedule permitting, he indulges a handful of dubiously accurate titles, including amateur Brew Guru, Marathon Runner and Irish Folk Musician.
