About Peter Hunt

Born in New York, Peter Hunt spent six years of his childhood in Athens, Greece, where he started diving in 1978. Hunt worked on several wreck diving boats based out of New York during high school and college, including the Wahoo, from which he made 13 dives to the Andrea Doria in 1983 and 1984. After graduating with a history degree from Brown University, Hunt joined the navy and trained as an A-6 Intruder attack pilot. During his naval service, he completed three aircraft carrier deployments to the Persian Gulf, Indian Ocean, and Western Pacific over ten years of active duty, earning the Distinguished Flying Cross and three Air Medals. Hunt went on to fly for United Airlines until being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2005 at age 43. That is when his writing began in earnest. Peter Hunt holds a master’s degree from the University of Washington, is the father of two adult children, and lives with his wife on Whidbey Island. He is the author of Angles of Attack, Setting the Hook, and The Lost Intruder.
