Al Pessin's picture

Al Pessin

Journalist Al Pessin’s first novel, the thriller SANDBLAST, will be published by Kensington Publishing Corp. in early 2020. The book was shortlisted for the 2017 Bosque Fiction Award and was a top-five selection among all unpublished book-length submissions, fiction and nonfiction, in the 2018 Royal Palm Literary Awards, presented by the Florida Writers Association. His short, short story, JIMMY’S HOUR was also a 2018 RPLA finalist.

Al’s to-the-point style and decades of frontline reporting deliver a high-tension veritas few can match.

He has covered U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, dined with anti-Soviet mujahedeen in Pakistan, interviewed Hamas militants in Gaza, and been a member of the White House and Pentagon press corps.
