Earlier this week, Peat posted via Twitter that he was bored of his old bio and was now having regrets about never wrestling a bear. Peat called on you guys (his fans) to get him inspired again.
- Write a short (250 words) bio about Peat’s life
- Email to email@example.com by midnight on Sunday
- Prize will be a U.S. hardcover of The Warded Man with an additional Rostant Cover
Here is the original bio that needs some creative updating:
Peter V. Brett is the author of The Warded Man, The Desert Spear and the recently released Daylight War. Raised on a steady diet of fantasy novels, comic books, and Dungeons & Dragons, Peter (“Peat” to his friends) has been writing fantasy stories for as long as he can remember. Graduating from New Rochelle High School in 1991, he went on to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Art History from the University at Buffalo in 1995. He then spent over a decade in pharmaceutical publishing before returning to writing. He lives in Brooklyn and is currently at work on The Skull Throne, the fourth book in the series.
We’ve already got some pretty spectacular bios in. Check ‘em out:
Raised on a steady diet of Flaming Hot Cheetos and Mountain Dew, Peter V. Brett, (Woogie to his friends), has been writing fantasy since the age of four. ( ‘Poo-Poo Bear Goes to Hell and Slays the Mother-of-All-Demons’ is now in its sixth printing.) He received a B.A. in English Literature and Art History from the University of Buffalo in 1995, where he was a four-year starter for the Buffalo Bulls, leading them to their only winning season in a decade, (1996 medical redshirt*). This was followed by a decade in the dungeons of the Bastille, Paris for ‘proxenetisme’. At long last he regained his freedom and his muse. He lives in denial.
Unlike other writers, Peter V. Brett’s fantasy-writer-fu does not lie in his luxurious beard. It lies in his superhuman thumbs, having written ‘The Warded Man’ almost entirely on his mobile phone. His thumbs are insured separately for $1,000,000 each.
He lives in Brooklyn, NY with a wall-to-wall collection of comics and action figures, a Noah’s Ark assortment of his own books, and a real life red-headed princess.
Little is known about the mysterious Peter V Brett. Some say he lives in seclusion, venturing out only to gift new books to the world. Others say he poses as a mortal, living among us in secret in order to best understand our strengths and weaknesses, the basis of his books. Thus far he has released three best sellers, The Warded Man, The Desert Spear, and The Daylight War. Rumors have it he will soon sneak into the public life again with the release of his upcoming book in the Demon Cycle.
Much is speculated as to the existence of the fantasy author known as Peter V Brett. Having already conquered much of the world, Peter is said to be the owner and trainer of a great, terrible dragon kept locked away safely in a dungeon in Brooklyn. Peter’s skill with writing is rumoured to have come from an intense addiction of devouring novels in his early years, however, this cannot be confirmed. After spending a great deal of his life working as a slave, Peter set his sights on grander ventures, bringing mere mortals to their knees. Akin to destroying the One Ring, telling the story of The Painted Man, is a feat to go down in history, along with the rest of The Demon Cycle. Peter has already put his University degree to good use writing fantasy novels and his more recent ventures have included telling the story of Red Sonja. Although, having not been given a comprehensive version, Peter has eagerly embraced his love of the art of comic books to tell the world her story. While caring for a small princess who calls him Dad, Peter spends most days working hard at telling the world about the lives of legendary heroes. It is also told that his bucket list consists of one thing and one alone – to wrestle a bear. After the great and wondrous things he has achieved so far, wrestling a bear should be like falling off a log.
