About The Author
The first adult author with whom R.W. Peake developed a long-term relationship was Louis L’Amour, whose body of work shaped his life philosophy.
After retiring from the Marines, R.W. proceeded to earn a BA in History from the Honors College at the University of Houston.
Although R.W. wrote a novel as a kid, he didn’t publish his first novel until age 50.
In addition to his time in the Marines, and before the tech bubble burst in 2000, he was a paper millionaire in the software industry.
A native Houstonian, R.W. recently relocated to the Olympic Peninsula of Washington, where he lives with his yellow Lab, Sadie.
