Patrick Chalfant


Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Patrick Chalfant is a fifth-generation Oklahoman with roots so deep that they predate statehood. Both his maternal and paternal ancestors participated in the Oklahoma Land Run and were allotted land, some of which is still owned by the Chalfant family.

Throughout his upbringing in the Midwest, Chalfant found inspiration in both the generous people of rural America and the raw beauty of the untamed land. Bury My Heart at Redtree eloquently combines Chalfant’s pride in his Osage Indian heritage with his passion for penning stories that capture the essence of life in America’s heartland.

Patrick’s first novel, When the Levee Breaks received
widespread critical acclaim. He currently resides in Tulsa with his wife, son, and two dogs.
