Peter Larrivee grew up in Cranston, Rhode Island, and graduated
from Cranston High School East with only significant emotional trauma.
He went on to the Community College of Rhode Island, then University of
Rhode Island where he attained a Bachelor's of Arts degree in
With a near-useless degreee and newfound passion
for craft beer, Peter soon took on the daunting task of the Yankee Brew
online newsletter known as the Hop Tips. He still diligently
slaves over this assignment every two weeks. A few years later, Peter
became the Craft Beer Columnist for Motif Magazine
, a local arts and
entertainment magazine that has become a staple of the Providence
community in art, literature, music, theater, and even beer and spirits.
Despite a number of projects and half-formed novels that littered
Peter's mind, it would be years before either a completed manuscript
would survive the rampant and disastrous hard drive crashes, or the
publishing world would even consider looking at an unpublished,
inexperienced young thirty-year old writer with a quantum of interest.
Luckily, the digital age has made self-publishing incredibly simple and
direct. After finishing Revenant
Peter used the online publisher Lulu.com
, which distributes to most
major eBook sellers and allows the purchase of on-demand print copies.
Since then, Peter has been hard at work trying to crank out both the sequel to Revenant
, and several other projects that wait on back-burners.
He is currently employed as the Sales Manager for
Bucket Brewery in Pawtucket, RI and lives in Coventry by an abandoned historical cemetary.
