Patrick O’Neil is the author of the memoir "Hold-Up" (13e Note Editions, Paris, France). His writing has appeared in numerous literary journals: Fourteen Hills, New Plains Review, Word Riot, Blood Orange Review, Weave Magazine, Diverse Voices Quarterly, and The Whistling Fire - to name a few. He is currently working on a second memoir regarding his time as a roadie/road manager for several major punk rock bands in the early eighties (Dead Kennedys, Flipper, TSOL, Subhumans).
Also an accomplished filmmaker O'Neil's short punk themed documentaries are being considered for a select few low budget film festivals. His last musical endeavor, the band ON-X, wandered off into obscurity, but O'Neil is still threatening to "get back in the game".
Patrick O'Neil holds an MFA from Antioch University Los Angeles. He currently resides in Hollywood California, and teaches at a local community college to students whose idea of literature is a text message. You can find more of his writing, music, and films online at: patrick-oneil.com
