Dusk Peterson is a fiction writer, history writer, journalist, and editor. Peterson's articles have appeared in nationally distributed magazines, as well as in international publications. In 2007, after several years of being published online and in a magazine,  Peterson's fiction began being published as e-books.

Fiction: Peterson writes fantasy stories and historical fantasy tales. Suspense plays an important role in many of the tales; the conflict in those tales is both external and internal. Peterson's stories are often placed in dark settings, such as prisons or wartime locations. The mood of the stories, however, is not one of unrelieved gloominess. Romance and friendship, especially male friendship, are recurring themes.

Nonfiction: Peterson's nonfiction over the years has spanned a wide range of topics: articles on social and intellectual history; community news and interfaith news; and resources for the blind and for genre fiction readers.
