The author of seven books of haiku-based writing, Peter Jastermsky lives in the high desert of Southern California, USA. He is an award-winning cherita poet whose work has been widely published. He is also a nominee for Best of the Net and the Dwarf Star Award. In 2017, Peter invented a new linked form called a split sequence, which is haiku-centered. His recent book, Just Dust and Stone (Velvet Dusk Publishing, 2021) is a collection of collaborative split sequences, cowritten with Bryan Rickert. Peter’s other titles include Steel Cut Moon (Cholla Needles Press, 2019) and Fingerbone Sky (Yavanika Press, 2021).
