A native Detroiter now transplanted to the suburbs, Pete is a graduate of Cass Technical High School and the University of Michigan. He began writing at the age of ten, and published his first story in the Copernicus Junior High School paper at thirteen. He was editor of Stardate Magazine from 1985-87, and authored articles for that magazine as well as Challenge and The Space Gamer. He is the author of the Orions supplement for FASA's Star Trek: The Role-Playing Game. For twenty years he was a business analyst for EDS and General Motors at World Headquarters, working in process improvement and corporate communications. An avid simulation gamer, he took up wargaming as a teen as a natural adjunct to his interest in history. His interest in science fiction stems from grade school days and his first Robert Heinlein story. A founding member of the Michigan Writer's Guild, he has been publicly attacked by some of its members for not publishing more sooner. He's now catching up.
Pete is a founding member of the Detroit-area Thursday Night Traveller and General Weirdness Society, established 1978 and still going strong.
