SUSPENSEFUL FRIENDSHIP FICTION ¶ Fantasy tales on friendship and betrayal in wartime ¶ By Dusk Peterson

Friendship fiction isn't just stories of first-graders exchanging notes in classrooms (though those tales are lovely). It can be about the emotional bonds that are created during wartime and in other tense situations. That's what you'll find here, along with love stories.

You can find information here about the e-books and upcoming paperbacks by Dusk Peterson, can browse through the video booktrailers, and can read a great many works of online fiction and nonfiction.

If you send me pretty compliments, I will print your letter out and frame it above my computer. (This isn't much of an exaggeration.) If, on the other hand, you send me a letter that begins, "What kind of nit-witted writer are you? You gave your character blue eyes in scene one and green eyes in scene two!" then I will raise up a shrine in your honor and burn candles upon your altar.
