About Peter Zachary Cohen

I've lived mainly in New York State and Wyoming (with some of their horses and blizzards), with notable time on the muskie waters of N.Y. and Minnesota. After Army service I mixed my own writing with conducting writing courses at Kansas State University, while sharing a small sheep farm with my wife and two sons.
Though I considered them of equal interest to adults my printed books were all published for children, receiving various reading list recognitions, two general awards, with three of them as Junior Literary Guild selections.
I also conceived and wrote the scripts for two half-hour dramatic films for an Xerox series, and have created and written the book and lyrics for two produced musicals.
And am continuing to be active outdoors and at a variety of folk- and other social dancing. Right now Sue and I are involved with our own Ragtime-Roaring Twenties era, choreographing steps to the Tin Pan Alley tunes of those years. I can be contacted at

Review by: James Jenkins on May 3, 2017 :
Not overly good or bad. The underwater scenes are difficult to track in relation to the above water scenes, the confusion lowered my enjoyment of an otherwise good coming of age tale.
