Peter Marlton is a pseudonym for Pete MacDonald, both as a fiction writer and as a musician and songwriter, who has discovered that writing fiction under another name can be psychologically and artistically liberating—it somehow skirts, without wholly avoiding, the imposter syndrome. He was born in San Francisco and has lived in Los Angeles, New York City, Seattle, and in three European countries. Stories and essays published as Pete MacDonald have appeared in The New York Times, The Battered Suitcase (a novella), Inkwell Journal, Barrellhouse Magazine, and others. His original screenplay was a finalist in the Austin Screenwriting Competition.
