The first adult author with whom R W Peake developed a long-term relationship was Louis L'Amour, whose body of work shaped his life philosophy. After retiring from the Marines, RW proceeded to earn a BA in History from the Honors College at the University of Houston.

Although RW wrote a novel as a kid, he didn't publish his first novel until age 50. In addition to his time in the Marines, and before the tech bubble burst in 2000, he was a paper millionaire in the software industry.

A native Houstonian, RW recently relocated to the Olympic Peninsula of Washington, where he lives with his yellow Lab, Sadie.
