Search - List of Books by Peter Pezzelli

Peter Pezzelli is an author from Narragansett, Rhode Island, who is best known for writing four novels. He lives with his wife, two children and their dog in Rhode Island where, most days, he is busy at work on his next novel. Born and raised in Rhode Island, Peter Pezzelli grew up in the town of North Providence. A graduate of La Salle Academy, he completed a year of prep school at Phillips Academy Andover before attending Wesleyan University where he earned a bachelors degree in English.

After college, Peter traveled for several weeks in Italy before coming home to begin training to be an administrator in his family’s nursing home business. He did not begin dabbling on the side with a writing career until later in his twenties when his girlfriend (and future wife) bought him an electric typewriter for his birthday. Not long after, while laid up recovering from knee surgery necessitated by a series of unfortunate rugby injuries, he decided to pass the time using it to write short stories. He later enrolled in some creative writing workshops at Brown University and eventually began in his spare time to submit freelance articles to Rhode Island Monthly and other local magazines and newspapers.

In time Peter decided to put aside short stories and freelance writing, and try his hand at writing a novel. He wrote several before finally penning Home To Italy. Published by Kensington Books in 2004, the story earned acclaim as a Book Sense “Pick” in September of that year and later as a “First Novel of Distinction”.

Peter is now the author of five published novels, all set primarily in Rhode Island or Italy. Translated worldwide into over a dozen languages, his stories of life, love, friendship, and family have been featured in Readers Digest Select Editions, Doubleday Book Club, and are favorites of library book clubs around the U.S.
