About this author

Hey, folks. If you're just discovering me or any of my work, it can be a little confusing because there are several facets to it. If you don't have time to read the whole bio below, here's the rundown:

• I write songs. I also record them to these cool things called CDs and put on concerts around the country. (And beyond! To my great delight, I get to play in Europe every year or so.)

• I write books. I just completed a four-part fantasy series for young readers called the Wingfeather Saga. The fourth and final book, , released in 2014, illustrated by Joe Sutphin. I drew some of the pictures for the first three books (but not the coolest ones).

• I'm the proprietor of the Rabbit Room, a community of songwriters, authors, and artists interested

The Warden and the Wolf King by Andrew Peterson
"A satisfying conclusion to Peterson's epic tale. I thought it could have used just a little tightening editorially, but maybe it was all needed to gather in the threads of the tale. I continued to love the honesty of Kalmar's and Janner's thoughts..." Read more of this review »

The Warden and the Wolf King by Andrew Peterson
"Many of my reviews boil down to something like, “This book was real good.” And that isn’t as helpful as it probably could be. So, even though I do think that the last installment of the Wingfeather Saga was excellent, I’d like to go a step further..." Read more of this review »

“Love is not a feeling in your chest; it is bending down to wash another's feet.”
Andrew Peterson

“The gospel gives me hope, and hope is not a language the dark voices understand.”
Andrew Peterson

“I am convinced that poets are toddlers in a cathedral, slobbering on wooden blocks and piling them up in the light of the stained glass. We can hardly make anything beautiful that wasn’t beautiful in the first place. We aren’t writers, but gleeful rearrangers of words whose meanings we can’t begin to know. When we manage to make something pretty, it’s only so because we are ourselves a flourish on a greater canvas. That means there’s no end to the discovery. We may crawl around the cathedral floor for ages before we grow up enough to reach the doorknob and walk outside into a garden of delights. Beyond that, the city, then the rolling hills, then the sea. And when the world of every cell has been limned and painted and sung, we lie back on the grass, satisfied that our work is done. Then, of course, the sun sets and we see above us the dark dome of glittering stars.

On and on it goes, all the way to the lightless borderlands of time and space, which we come to discover in some future age are but the beginnings or endings of a single word spoken from the mouth of God. Some nights, while I traipse down the hill, I imagine that word isn’t a word at all, but a burst of laughter.”
Andrew Peterson

“The world...is full of resurrections... Every night that folds us up in darkness is a death; and those of you that have been out early, and have seen the first of the dawn, will know it - the day rises out of the night like a being that has burst its tomb and escaped into life.”
George MacDonald, The Seaboard Parish

“Therefore all that is not beautiful in the beloved, all that comes between and is not of love's kind, must be destroyed.”
George MacDonald, Unspoken Sermons: Series I, II, III

“Seeing is not believing - it is only seeing.”
George MacDonald, The Princess and the Goblin

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
Annie Dillard, The Writing Life

“We sleep to time's hurdy-gurdy; we wake, if ever we wake, to the silence of God. And then, when we wake to the deep shores of time uncreated, then when the dazzling dark breaks over the far slopes of time, then it's time to toss things, like our reason, and our will; then it's time to break our necks for home.
There are no events but thoughts and the heart's hard turning, the heart's slow learning where to love and whom. The rest is merely gossip, and tales for other times.”
Annie Dillard, Holy the Firm
