The author's style of writing flows with no lag what-so-ever.....Through grief and pain many lives are touched and each in turn leaves a little healing behind to move his characters forward.

D. Carey


Page after page finds the reader imagining what mysteries lay on the next.

I always know when a book is great when I feel like I know the people, and I can't stop wondering about them after I put the book down.

As a licensed Commercial Pilot, Peter spends much of his time in the sky. When back on the ground, he likes to write, play guitar and, for better or worse, do his own yard work. He wrote Unplanned Connections while completing his Master's Degree at Kent State. The whole time his wife thought he was studying. 

Peter wrote Wading Through Static while waiting for the first publisher to print the first novel. The story of all that would require another website but Peter does explain the happenings during book presentations. 


The Shoebox Letters is currently being edited for publication. A concurrent screenplay tells the story using the classic music of Journey, but the movie is unlikely to reach production unless the band decides to approve the concept.

Peter generally writes in the evenings when the house is quiet.  He is a member of the Writers Alliance, a writers' group in his hometown. He has lived in the Midwest much of his life and resides in Ohio.
