Christopher David Petersen (1963 - 20??). Born and raised in Connecticut. As a child, I was always daring and reckless. Never one to let common sense stand in the way of a great adventure, my bold feats of stupidity were legendary... Huckleberry Finn would have been proud.
"Surprisingly", that same spirit carried over into adulthood, as I sought out entertainment that included: scuba diving; ski Mountaineering; mountain biking; Rock, Ice and Mountain climbing; flying planes; golf, motorcycles, the stock market and of course, experimentation with various alcoholic refreshments.
Later in life, writing became an extension of my deep desire to experience "new and exciting worlds". I have written several books, but none have been published through any formal channels... I've heard the process is long, painful and laborious, the thought of which sickens me. My foray into e-publishing came after a friend suggested my works could fetch dollars instead of dust inside my sock drawer... a righteous observation. My recent publications are the result of this advice. Further adventure/suspense novels are soon to be released.
An engineer by trade, I have worked all over the U.S. and usually write in my spare time... that is when I'm not enjoying a bottle of Scotch and a quality cigar. I am a naturally long-winded individual, so writing is what happens when I can't get anyone to listen to me anymore...
I love all kinds of genres but gravitate more towards suspense. There is nothing like the build up to a great climax... What a rush!

Simon Price is back and he hasn’t lost a step. The bosses have been dealt with and so he sets his homicidal sites on cops in “I’m a Murderer...Book 2: The Police,” by Christopher David Petersen.
Simon Price is a meticulous and methodical man who loves nothing more than a planning the perfect execution, nothing that is except executing the perfect plan. And while a calm and patient planner he’s also a man of passion and rage, possessing a temper which he must keep in check lest it be his undoing.
“I’m a Murderer...Book 2,” like the first installment of this series features two viewpoints: The sometimes detached, sometimes horrified narrator, and Simon himself in a present tense first-person. The narrator gives the work a storybook horror show feel, urging us to keep watching by mockingly covering his eyes and exclaiming “Oh, I don’t think I can bear it.” Simon’s here and now first-person narration serves to flesh out his character, his cold calculations and his flashes of near overwhelming anger.
Simon also possesses a sense of humor and as you might guess, it tends to be a bit dark. As in in the midst of dispatching a particularly hard nosed character he finally gets the response he’s after: “Ah ha… tears. Finally, an appropriate response. NOW I can start your murder.”
“I’m a Murderer...Book 2: The Police” is a good bit of suspenseful twisted fun.
