About R. Clint Peters

R. Clint Peters was born in 1948 in a small town in central Washington State. Many people will not recognize him as R. Clint Peters, which is his pen name. Most people will know him as Ron Peters. R. Clint Peters (Ron) was first introduced to writing in high school, where he was told by his English teacher that he had an ability to write. Unfortunately, it took almost 40 years to use that ability. R. Clint Peters is the author of 7 completed novels, and at least six that are in-process. He has written several series, including The Pendergast series, The Ryce Dalton series, the Klete Wilkins series, and has started two new series, the Nixon French series, and the Brinkerford series. Additional information can be found at http://rclintpeters.wordpress.com R. Clint Peters now lives in Mesa, AZ. He likes fishing, camping and trying to grow a garden. Perhaps the best thing about growing a garden in Arizona is not having to cook the vegetables; they are cooked when they are pulled out of the ground. R.

Review by: JOHN PHOENIX on Sep. 09, 2013 :
This was categorized as the thriller but I was anything but thrilled. Indie book or not there is no excuse for poor editing.

Review by: Matt Eliason on Aug. 15, 2013 :
I gave up on the book at 20.4%. Endless detail about stuff that dragged and dragged.

Writing indicated a non-advanced education level and also the use of a good, to-the-point editor who was prepared to challenge the author on "why is this included...what relevance?"

At 20% read, too much seemed irrelevant and non-captivating enough for me to potentially find out.

Review by: Nora Lee on Aug. 11, 2013 :
The editing in The Alberta Connection is better than most indy books but far from perfect. The biggest fault is the lack of contractions, I only noted one in the entire story. This makes the writing stiff and unnatural, not at all like the vast majority of people speak. Continuity needs to be addressed. At one point Ryce seleted a .357 cal. handgun and a .357 cal. Henry lever action rifle to take on a mission. When he shoots the bad guy he's using a military M-4. That's sloppy editing. The first half of the story is used to set up the final half and it drags. There are so many characters named that I lost track of who they were and what they did before the end of the book. In my opinion the lovey dovey passion between Ryce and Tanya was overdone. In the first half she was either on his lap or in the shower with him constantly. Too much.
