Biographical Sketch

Peter Murray Hautman was born September 29, 1952, in Berkeley, CA, the son of Thomas Richard and Margaret Elaine Hautman. He attended the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, 1970-72, and University of Minnesota, 1972-76. After working for almost twenty years in advertising and design, he left that field in 1992 to begin his second career as a freelance author. Pete Hautman is a prolific author who has found publishing success in not only adult novels but in several highly acclaimed works of fiction for teen readers. Lauded by critics for their imaginative, action-filled plots are Mr. Was , Stone Cold , and Hole in the Sky , all of which feature young protagonists whose confrontation with difficulties force them to follow unusual paths into adulthood. Under the pseudonym Peter Murray, Hautman has penned numerous works of juvenile nonfiction, covering everything from dinosaurs to weather to biographies of notable Americans. Hautman lives in Minneapolis, MN with companion and writer Mary Logue.
