Pete Hautman worked various jobs including sign painter, graphic artist, marketing executive, painter cap salesman, and pineapple slicer before, having no better options, he wrote the novel Drawing Dead. He is the author of many books including Godless which won the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature in 2004. He lives with novelist and poet Mary Logue in Minnesota and Wisconsin with one small dog named Gaston. When he’s not writing or reading, he likes to cook, run, bike, inline skate, hunt wild mushrooms, look at art, and take naps.
