Peter was born in California sometime during 1976. Maybe. It was a good year to allegedly be born in. He has always been amazed and fascinated by both writing and the world in general, and has worked in everything from waiting tables to private detection.

Throughout the course of his life, he has hitchhiked across the States and backpacked across Europe on the Eurail. He likes reading, watching movies, playing video games, and playing tabletop games. He also studies martial arts and philosophy.

Just in case you were wondering, he loves strawberry daiquiris, and you are welcome to mail him one (can you tell he likes his postman?). Peter writes a lot, and will continue to do so till the day he dies. Possibly beyond. Peter has acted (Revenge of the Nerds and others), designed (and written storylines for) games (the bestselling Cyberpunk CCG), written novels and other spec fiction (like Second Paradigm, which landed him a guest speaker gig with local Mensa on writing true nonlinear concepts), and even gotten nominated for a Bram Stoker Award for his first graphic novel, Behind These Eyes (co-written with Guy Anthony De Marco.)

Currently, he is managing editor of Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta’s WordFire Press and is working on his next three novels with Steven L. Sears.
