About Pete Morin

In my adult life, I’ve been a trial attorney, a politician, a bureaucrat, a lobbyist, and (I like to think) an observant witness to human behavior. I’ve tried to combine all of them in my debut novel, Diary of a Small Fish.

My creative writing began at the University of Vermont in the mid-1970’s, where I was very fortunate to have studied under award winning authors David Huddle and T. Alan Broughton. Following college, I pursued a wide-ranging career in law and politics in which I served three terms in the Massachusetts Legislature and two years as general counsel of the MBTA. In what some friends peg a mid-life crisis, I returned to writing fiction in 2007.I now split my time between fiction and law.
My short fiction has appeared in NEEDLE, A Magazine of Noir, Words With Jam, 100 Stories for Haiti, and Words to Music. I republished many of them in a collection titled Uneasy Living.

When I’m not writing crime fiction or practicing law, I play blues guitar in Boston bars, enjoy food and wine with my wife of 28 years, Elizabeth, and our two adult children. On increasingly rare occasions, I play a round of golf. We live in a money pit on the seacoast south of Boston, in an area once known as the Irish Riviera.

I am very lucky to be represented by Christine Witthohn of Book Cents Literary Agency.

Buried Treasure is a good short story with strong characters and good editing. I recommend it for a quick thirty minute read.

Pete Morin has given us a fun little tale of murder and mayhem on old Cape Cod. We get buried treasure, an ornery suspect who looks like a pirate, boats blowing up, and an intriguing mystery.
The characterizations are sharp and well-drawn. The style shows the writer has a feel for the area and its people.
An entertaining read.
