About Allan K. Patch:
Retired USN Captain Allan Patch grew up in Plymouth, Mass with a family history that
precedes the Revolution; leading to his fascination with the heritage of our nation.
Adding sciences to his interest in history, Allan earned a BS in biology from Boston
College and a DMD from Tufts University. He then spent over two decades in the Navy,
deployed in both Navy hospitals and in active duty with the Marine Corps; and had a
private dental practice while serving in the Naval Reserve.
Dr. Patch expanded his interests to Greek and Roman history; which provided fertile
ground for his fiction writing. He is a board member of the Friends of Classics at San
Diego State University.

present, and future with ordinary people tossed into extraordinary situations. Delphi’s
Chosen continues the adventure.. but now the characters are volunteers rather than
victims. He invites readers along for the thrilling ride and explores the difference
between heroism and celebrity in the context of past and present culture.
