Andrew Peterson will discuss plotting and writing thrillers at the next TVW meeting. The author of two novels, First to Kill and Forced to Kill, Peterson began writing fiction in 1990. He sold a short story, “Mr. Haggarty’s Stop”, to San Diego Writers Monthly in October, 1992. He continued to write exploring both the novel form and screenplays. After attending his first writers’ conference in 2005, he became serious about telling the Nathan McBride stories. First to Kill was released in September 2008. He is currently working on the third novel in a planned series featuring the brutally effective Marine Corps scout sniper and CIA operations officer.
While on a book signing journey, Andrew took time to visit VA hospitals and sit with our nation’s veterans. He gave away hundreds of books. In Phoenix, he had the pleasure of meeting a Pearl Harbor survivor and one of the last remaining Navajo code talkers. He’s also donated over 2,000 books to our troops serving overseas and to our wounded warriors recovering in Naval and Army hospitals all over the world.
He and his wife live in Monterey County with their two giant schnauzers. Visit his website at http://www.andrewpeterson.com.
