Born in Brooklyn from Italian and Greek descent, Peter is indeed a man of many professions — including a microfilm clerk, an environmental and pharmaceutical chemist, a theatre actor, a freelance news camera operator, an NBC Page for The Tonight Show, and a camera technician for NBC/Universal Studios, until he finally discovered his niche: freelance copyeditor/proofreader, speculative fiction writer and editor/co-founder (along with literary master, Mark D’ Anna, the Kurt Vonnegut of our generation) of Ex Machina Press, the proud parent of Silent Voices: A Creative Mosaic Of Fiction. Peter received his BS in Chemistry and his MA in English (Creative Writing/Literature) from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. His early literary influences include Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Harlan Ellison, Edgar Allen Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King and many others.
