Years ago Pete Catalano found an Artifact that allows him to write great Middle Grade stories. Keeping it a secret but putting it to good use, he's completed several new novels, and not surprisingly, can be found always working on the next new idea. He lives in Charlotte, NC with one beautiful wife, two very needy one hundred pound sheep dogs, and a multitude of characters inside his head -- battling to get out.

A member of The Sweet Sixteens, Pete's debut middle grade novel, ARTIFACTS, is slated for release on May 17, 2016 from Month9Books.

Neil Gaiman
“And when things get tough, this is what you should do.

Make good art.

I'm serious. Husband runs off with a politician? Make good art. Leg crushed and then eaten by mutated boa constrictor? Make good art. IRS on your trail? Make good art. Cat exploded? Make good art. Somebody on the Internet thinks what you do is stupid or evil or it's all been done before? Make good art. Probably things will work out somehow, and eventually time will take the sting away, but that doesn't matter. Do what only you do best. Make good art.”
Neil Gaiman

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Some who have read the book, or at any rate have reviewed it, have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible, and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing that they evidently prefer.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

John Lennon
“I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?”
John Lennon

Neil Gaiman
“A philosopher once asked, "Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?" Pointless, really..."Do the stars gaze back?" Now, that's a question.”
Neil Gaiman, Stardust

George Washington Carver
“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.”
George Washington Carver
