Patrick Jasper Lee comes from a Romani Gypsy background, and he brings the folklore, mythology and traditions of the ancient Romani people to his books.
His fiction/non-fiction books on Romani Gypsy themes are unique to his indigenous culture. His first book "We Borrow the Earth" was published by Thorsons, HarperCollins; his current works (including the second edition of "We Borrow the Earth") are now published by Ravine Press.
He is keen to portray the contrasting realms of invincibility and vulnerability within human nature in his books, and campaigns to reintroduce people to the benefits of primitive psychology as a means of seeing the world and nature in their original forms. He is especially keen to reintroduce Romani folklore as a therapy for helping an individual move closer to the natural self, and to heal personal problems.
