About the Author

Poetic Pete™, a.k.a. Peter Karplus, author of Dancing with Fear, Rejection, Doubt, and Hope, born and raised in California, has had to live with Cerebral Palsy since birth and suffers from Epilepsy. He finds poetry to be a versatile tool in expressing his thoughts and feelings. Moreover, verse unleashes his quick intelligence, which goes unseen by strangers, because of their first impressions from his slow speech, poor coordination, and bent “book cover” body. Peter’s range of personal experiences, knowledge, and understanding bring a distinctive and perceptive special sensitivity, and sense of fun or folly to his poetry.
