Meet the Author

Peter Breschard was born during the second half of the 20th century in the westernmost section of Long Island, New York; Breukelen. Reared in an exclusive suburban hamlet whose name honors famed Quaker Abolitionist Elias Hicks, Breschard has lived and worked in Boston, New York City, New Bedford, Stockbridge, Los Angeles, and Okemos, Michigan. Eschewing a narrowly focused career path, Breschard has at various times paid dues to the United Auto Workers, the Teamsters, the Screen Actors Guild, the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, and the Federation of Government Employees. Working as a cabbie, teacher, social worker, actor, federal agent, bookstore scout, production accountant, background artist, PC mechanic, census enumerator, stand-in, carpenter, floral deliveryperson, paperboy, caddy, Wall Street drone, portrayer of fictional characters; Breschard has never endorsed Hemingway's dictum regarding wars and writing. A graduate of the Honors Program at Boston College, certainly enough was enough. Peter Breschard's fictions have appeared in numerous publications. IN THE WIND, a collection of shorter works, as well as, IMELDA AND FRIENDS, a novel, are available through most booksellers. The one time in his adult life this tenth generation New Yorker was atop a horse, he received payment for doing so. CIRCUS RIDER, a novel history, is now available.

I wasn't expecting much but three of the stories knocked my socks off.
