"Mockingbirds are the true artists of the bird kingdom, who aren't content to merely play the hand that is dealt to them. Like all artists, they are out to rearrange reality. Innovative, willful, daring, not bound by the rules to which others may blindly adhere, the mockingbird collects snatches of birdsong from this tree and that field, appropriates them, places them in new and unexpected contexts, and recreates the world from the world." - Tom Robbins
Are you a mockingbird?
We desire to inspire, support, and cultivate creativity and imagination through the love of our work. On the journey of finding our stories and living our dreams, we have found a common desire to support and assist others in telling their own stories and creating their own dreams. We mentor, coach, and support authors on their creative journeys and bring creative teams together.
We currently specialize in children’s books, while building a professional network that connects creatives from all genres and categories. We provide support in editing, illustration, photography, branding, marketing, and distribution.
Welcome to Mockingbird Press.
About the Founder
Patrick Lane began writing over a decade ago. Despite living with dyslexia, he has always loved words and the power of words and pictures combined to tell stories. While working in the film industry, he realized that while he loves stories in many forms- children’s books, short stories, young adult, graphic novels, cinema, etc., his true desire is to write and create his own content to share with the world and empower others to do the same.
Patrick’s experiences with self-publishing have inspired him to create a platform for empowering more story-tellers like himself to share their gifts with the world.
