About the Author


R. Peter Ubtrent was born in Queens, New York, the son of a Master Watchmaker who had emigrated from Germany in the 1950s.  He lived on Long Island for eight years and then the family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico for the business opportunities awaiting there.  Mr. Ubtrent grew up in Albuquerque, where he attended the Albuquerque Academy, a private school for grades 5 through 12.  Participating in sports, music and drama, it was here that he began his writing career during his free periods.  Joining the Naval Reserve after graduating high school, he used the money earned as well as the money he made working at his father’s store to get a double major in astrophyics and history.  He then went on to receive a degree in secondary education and a Masters in military history.  Mr. Ubtrent has an extensive library in his home in Edgewood, New Mexico and is continuing to work on new books.
