VJ Books Presents Author P.T. Deutermann!

Author P.T. DeutermannPeter T. "P.T." Deutermann was born on December 27, 1941 in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1963, he was commissioned at Annapolis into the surface line, where he was ordered to the new destroyer USS Morton. He served in Morton for two years, and was onboard for the second Gulf of Tonkin incident in September,1964, which precipitated the first significant aircraft carrier strikes against North Vietnam.

In 1968, he married Susan Cornelia Degenhardt, of Gainesville, Florida, and went off to two years at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington, where he was awarded a masters degree in public administration and international law. Following graduate school, he returned in 1970 to the Pacific Fleet as operations officer of the guided missile cruiser Jouett. In 1972, he went to the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, for one year. He was then assigned to the Pentagon for three years, serving on a joint command and control computer integration project.

In late 1985, he assumed command of Destroyer Squadron 25, based in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, for two years, during which he made one deployment to the Indian Ocean, where he visited Kenya, Pakistan, Singapore, and Japan. Upon conclusion of the Pearl Harbor tour of duty, he was assigned to the Royal College of Defence Studies (RCDS) in London, England, for one year. The RCDS was an international course studying the influence of military affairs on geopolitics, whose members represented forty different countries.

He retired from active duty after 26 years in 1989 with nineteen military awards and decorations. He then worked successively for three companies over the next four years which supported the Federal Aviation Administration in the procurement of large scale computer systems.

He published his first fiction novel, Scorpion in the Sea, in 1992 through the George Mason University Press. This book landed him an agent, and then a contract with St. Martins Press in 1993, with whom he has published all of his successive novels. Foreign translation rights have been sold into Japan, China, Spain, England and the British Commonwealth, Poland, Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, Russia, the Czech Republic, to name some.

Deutermann and Susan live in Rockingham County, North Carolina, where he helps her run her Dartmoor Pony breeding farm.
