Peter Richmond attended Yale University, where he studied under the late, great John Hersey and the very alive, great David Milch. He was awarded a Nieman Fellowship in Journalism at Harvard, where he studied art, architecture, paleontology, playwriting and humility. His work has appeared in more than a dozen anthologies, He is the co-host, with author David Kamp, of a public radio show about his tragic attachment to the New York Giants called "Tangled Up in Blue," which airs during the season on NPR’s smallest affiliate, WHDD-FM. He is currently working on a Young Adult novel about prep school for Philomel, a biography of Phil Jackson for Blue Rider and a musical about the NFL for fun. In writing a book with Muhammad Ali which has never been published, he took Ali to a McDonald’s where they both ate French fries and drank strawberry milk shakes. He also spent a morning with Paul Newman in his New York City apartment, whose kitchen featured two rinsed Budweiser cans in the dish-drying rack. He has interviewed hundreds of celebrities, athletes and notable people, but has discovered that the guy you end up sitting next to at the bar in a Ruby Tuesday’s just off the interstate, next to the Marriott Courtyard, is usually every bit as fascinating as the famous people, although Paul Newman would prove the exception there. But come to think of it, Newman was exactly the kind of guy who’d want to watch a football game at a franchise restaurant bar off the interstate. He lives in the really wonderful village of Millerton, New York, in Dutchess County, with his wife, writer and wine purveyor Melissa Davis.
