Peter Lourie

Peter writes adventure books for children and adults. Peter's adventure books come directly from his travel journals.  In order to write a book about a place - its history, geography, people and culture - he likes to experience it for himself.

      As a child, he loved collecting rocks and wandering the countryside of Connecticut. When his parents split up, he, his identical twin brother Jim, and their younger sister Ann moved to Ontario, Canada. In the fourth grade, deep into the Hardy Boys, Peter wanted to be a bush pilot in Canada's Northwest Territories. He also wanted to be an archaeologist, to travel the world and delve into ancient cultures.
