Peter had an affinity for writing, and in the late 1990’s he acted on this talent winning a First Literary Prize for his very first short story at the highly respected Santa Barbara’s Writer’s Conference in California. Shortly thereafter, he took first place out of 500 entries in Francis Ford Coppola’s online Zoetrope magazine for his first publicly circulated short story, The Blood of our Departed.
Peter continued his track record of writing excellence with the publication of Pope Annalisa, which immediately won the Nautilus and Independent Publishers Awards in quick succession followed by the National Best Book Award. In Pope Annalisa, he explores an ancient spiritual tradition which cut across not only Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, but also the so-called pagan mystery schools of ancient days.
Peter has twenty-five years of voluminous research behind him in both mainstream and alternative religious/spiritual studies, with a particular interest in early Christianity. He is a leading expert on Gnostic and other ancient spiritual traditions. He travels the country as a speaker on such topics as parallels between Gnostic mysticism and quantum physics, the Sacred Feminine, Mary Magdalene and the lost women of the Bible, and the secret teachings of Jesus. His skills helped him break down these complex spiritual themes into simple and entertaining fiction. Pope Annalisa was a combination of this research and information channeled in his own meditations.
His hope is that this cross-over novel, part thriller and part spiritual wisdom text, will point to a new paradigm transcending the dead end dogmas of religious, cultural and gender differences that have caused so much suffering in the human community.
