Peter got locked in a bookstore as a child and has been reading his way to freedom ever since.

His first tales developed from Dungeons & Dragons campaigns that never got played, and watching Babylon 5 on repeat. After having several dozen short stories published through various publishers, Peter has switched to longer forms of writing.

The science fiction “Consensus” novels depict one family’s struggle in the face of alien invasion, and the “Vol’kris Chronicles” are a series of standalone tales that explore humanity’s misadventures in a world ruled by insects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Read
By DawnDe on July 17, 2022
I am not much of a Science Fiction reader, but the author's world-building pulled me in. A helicopter pulled through a portal during a violent storm to another planet, strands Nina, her boss Harrington and their pilot Al in a world that at first looks like a desert island on earth, but very soon, the threesome find they are no longer on their planet. The portal they've come through is getting smaller by the hour. We look into Nina and her boss Harrington's shaky relationship due to their past life experiences. The "Bants" are intelligent, hardworking, and protective of their world. To fix the helicopter so they can get through the portal before it disappears, the three embark on a strange world, journeying into the unknown to save themselves. Not all will make it out alive.
