Peter Sessum has spent his adult life in service to his country and community in one way or another. A former Army sergeant, his experience on a deployment to Afghanistan helped him get jobs working on two counter narcotics programs in Afghanistan for the State Department. Sessum used his G.I. Bill to go back to school and graduated from the University of Washington in 2011 with a degree in Journalism.
Like most writers, he spends most of his time staring at a blank sheet with no ideas, staring at the ceiling in the middle of the night with the next great novel swirling in his head, and spending time with his dogs, Bella and Daisy.
