Peter plays the character ‘Nigel Lowenwirth’ who is the manipulative personal secretary to Best-Selling Author Marjorie Melbourne Blaze.
Peter accomplished something quite unique with his wonderful novel, “GOOD LIKE THIS, A NOVEL.” He has managed to not only write a compelling book with believable characters, he has also educated the reader about Type 1 Diabetes in an fascinating way. “GOOD LIKE THIS, A Novel,” is about an ambitious investment banker and his successful artist wife live the spectacular American life, until the wall of their secrets comes crumbling down. During a passionate escapade he discovers her secret drug addiction and when he receives the career offer of a lifetime he has to face his demons about his raging health condition, before he loses his life and the trust of their beloved daughter. The New York City Marathon becomes the unexpected backdrop for the riveting finale and this family’s new bright life about to begin.
See why people are raving about this book!
“Has the pace of a thriller” ”Extremely entertaining” “Unfolds like a film” “Compelling” “Sexy, smart” “What a ride!”
This fast paced story about love, passion and self-discovery is based on an award-winning screenplay by the author (winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the New York International Film Festival).
Never before in fiction a protagonist with type 1 diabetes goes from victim to hero, not in spite of it, but because of it. Even though the story dives into the dichotomy and similarities of two people one with an addiction and one with a disease, GOOD LIKE THIS is first and above all a story about people, their flaws, their power and their transformation. GOOD LIKE THIS has been called “A mesmerizing story with universal appeal.” Because in life it’s not what we have that counts, but what we do with it.
Peter will be seen in the upcoming film “Live By Night,” written/starring/directed by Ben Affleck, slated to hit the theaters late in 2016.
