About the Author

Lifelong resident of Minnesota. Peter currently lives with wife Shari and golden retriever, Daisy, in Wayzata, Minnesota for part of the year. They spend winter months in Tubac, AZ, and have two daughters and six grandchildren.
Education/business background: Graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth with a BA degree in English Literature. Played college hockey for two years. Worked as a counselor at a home for emotionally disturbed children while attending college. After graduation, Peter went to work as a manufacturer’s representative.  He continued to work as a rep for thirty-five years.  He sold the business and retired Oct 1, 2002, and immediately began writing. Early successes include seven short story publications, one non-fiction book, and three novels. His 4th novel, Shepherd Lake will be released in November, 2015.

Writing style: Peter writes adventure novels loaded with tension and suspense.  “I write the kind of books I enjoy reading: Entertaining, full of surprise, with ordinary characters drawn from everyday life. There are no super-heroes or spies in my books–just regular folks who for one reason or another find themselves drawn into serious conflict. I want the reader to dread reaching the end of one of my books, and yet– can’t wait to see what happens.”
