And here’s the rest:
Patric Peake, educator and counselor, has been principal of a Continuation High School for at risk teens, and an elementary school.
He has been on faculty of the University of Santa Monica and worked with students on their masters projects in psychology. He did this for the previous five years, 2006 to 2011.
This year, 2012, he graduated from University of Santa Monica with a new master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology with an emphasis on Consciousness, Health, and Healing
He has given workshops around the world in self-esteem, team-building, parenting, and drop-out prevention.
He has published articles on writing, story telling, and journal writing, as well as a manual on the M-14 rifle.
His current novel, Chainmail, is close to completion and searching for the perfect agent, and/or publisher.
