Finding My Passion


Peter  Harlan Figur grew up in Massapequa, a small New York town located on  Long Island in the southeast corner of Nassau County. After graduating  from C.W. Post College, he spent the next 30+ years working in the  accounting/auditing field for three multi-national companies. 

About  five years ago, Peter started writing a daily journal recapping daily  events, capturing his thoughts, and documenting his opinions. He had  gotten the idea for a journal from a book called "The Heroin Diaries"  written by Nikki Sixx. It was an odd choice of a book and an author, to  say the least. But that's how inspiration works. You can't go looking  for it, because you'll never find it. Inspiration always finds you. 

Peter's  daily journal morphed into writing short stories about his travels  around the world and his passion for music and sports. He even wrote a  hockey blog one year covering his beloved New York Islanders and their  final season in the Nassau Coliseum. But the more Peter wrote the more  it drove him towards an even more significant project, to write his  autobiography entitled "Life Sentence."

The  book would document a specific challenge that had haunted Peter his  whole life. He wrote extensively about how searching years for a cause  until he finally found the problem. It was extremely difficult situation  to deal with, but Peter knew it wasn't the end of the world. It was  just be something to live with the rest of his life. It wasn't a death  sentence, it was a life sentence.

After  a couple of years of writing, there were two significant problems with  Life Sentence." First, there was enough material for a couple of books  in different genres, and second, he couldn't figure out how the story  was supposed to end. There was a good reason for that. It was an  autobiography. There was still some big things on the horizon. You can't  finish your autobiography until you get closer to the end and Peter  knew there were more chapters to write before his story was over.

The  New America and The Divinity Complex represented Peter's first two  novels. Writing for Peter is not a hobby, but a calling. It was meant to  be.
