I'm passionate about writing stories that readers don't want to put down.

Missing--my 7th novel, a mystery featuring a female private detective is now available on Amazon in print and digital versins.

My prior novels are:
* The Expendable Man (2011)--a thriller
* Making the Grade (2012)--a police procedural
* Last Stop on Desolation Ridge (2013)--a suspense
* In the Game (2013)--another procedural
* House Divided (2015)--a political thriller
* Inauguration Day (2017)--a political thriller

The summer of 2020 I published a memoir entitled "Left to Right." It's the story of my transition from a student leftist in the 1960s to a conservative in the 21st century.

Writer's block is a result of someone feeling constrained by expectations s/he either did not set or did not consider properly when s/he agreed to them. I have goals, spelled out concretely, but I don't beat myself up if I depart from my plan. I may adjust my goals, but I listen to my "subconscience" mind and if it tells me it wants to stop work on one novel to write a chapter on another, I go along.(less)

Introducing Peter G. Pollak’s Memoir, “Left to Right”

Elkridge, MD (8/26/2020)––When Peter Pollak’s siblings and children couldn’t understand how he’d evolved from a student radical in the 1960s to a political conservative in the 21st century, he decided it was time to write a memoir. The result: “Left to Right,” was published today on Pollak’s personal imprint, Expendable Man Publishing.

Left to Right describes how Gloversville native Peter Pollak be

“Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.”
