Peter L. Scamardo II

A member of the Writers’ League since 2023, Peter lives in the San Antonio, TX area.

Scribe: Welcome, writer! Tell us — what do you write?

Peter L. Scamardo II: Fiction (family dramas to be specific, but I like to hop around genres).

Scribe: If you could choose one author to blurb your book, who would it be, and what would you want it to say?

PLS: Michael Crichton: “A voice shining a light on the many voices of the Lone Star State.”

Scribe: You have one book you’re allowed to push onto all of your friends, and they’re forced to read it to remain your friend — which one would you choose?

PLS: The Golden Compass, a personal favorite fantasy adventure that questions authority and shows there is magic everywhere in the world.

Scribe: Tell us your WLT story.

PLS: I’m an editor with MySA (part of the San Antonio Express-News). I had already published a book when I joined MySA and wanted to form a new writing series. I started profiling authors and bookstores in the San Antonio area, through which I learned about WLT and the many resources it provides, as well as the community it supports.

Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?

PLS: To a place where I’m able to show people that if you have a story you believe is worth telling, nothing can stop you.

Scribe: Here at the WLT, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one book that has come out within the past few years that you couldn’t put down? (Bonus points if the book is Texas related!)

PLS: Suzanne Ohlmann’s Shadow Migration.

Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!

PLS: I self-published my second book The Flyers in March 2024. It’s a YA fantasy set in modern day Texas that imagines what faeries would look like in the real world. I’ve been working on it in many forms for almost 10 years and am excited to share it with everyone. I have a handful of events lined up in the San Antonio area and will be announcing them soon.

Scribe: Let us know any social media handles you have!
