Peter Aronson is a former lawyer, a former journalist, and now a full-time children’s book author living in New York City with his wife and two teenage daughters. Peter began writing books for kids after seeing his children read one dystopian-themed book after another. Peter decided to start writing more reality-based books – about real people who did fantastic things. Thus, was born his Groundbreaker series: Short biographies about extraordinary people doing extraordinary things. Also, coming later in 2019, Peter’s Mandalay Hawk adventure series – novels about a wacky and extremely motivated 14-year-old girl who decides to tackle the world’s most severe problems. Mandalay has no clue, but she and her friends decide they want to stop global warming. You’ll read a lot about KRAAP: Kids Revolt Against Adult Power.

As a lawyer, Peter helped senior citizens with their legal problems. Before Peter was a practicing lawyer, he was an award-winning journalist covering the legal world. Peter wrote newspaper stories for the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, The Recorder (San Francisco), and The National Law Journal, and then he produced TV shows for Court TV. Peter covered many prominent cases, including the Rodney King beating trial, the OJ Simpson murder trial, and Bush v. Gore, the legal case following the 2000 presidential election. Peter also is a lifetime athlete. He has run more than 130 races and has completed three marathons. His fastest time was 3:42:44. Peter looks forward to writing children’s books for years to come. His motto: Adventurous and inspiring books for adventurous and inspired kids.

I am always looking for interesting gifts for kids of friends and family and books have proven big winners for me. It is difficult though to find good non-fiction but this is an engaging story for those middle school kids who want to read about real heroes. Nice job. – Garth Butterfield
