A writer, architect and city planner reared in a family of journalists, Peter found his father’s 400 World War II letters, his humorous war stories, his mother’s writings and his family’s often hilarious doings too good a tale to keep to himself, so he launched a second career as a writer. After years of architectural work and proposal writing for his design firms, he went back to Washington University to study creative writing. The amusing antics and serious achievements of his father’s military adventure, Ben’s War with the U. S.  Marines, and his first Patrick MacKenna Mystery, Crimes of Design,  were republished n 2014 by Greenskills Press. A new Patrick MacKenna Mystery, Fatal Designs, appeared in early 2015. In 2016 the second book in his Voices of World War II series, Radio: One Woman’s Family in War and Pieces was published in 2018. His third Patrick MacKenna mystery, Chicago’s Designs, launches in Fall, 2019.
