Pete Hempstead

PETE HEMPSTEAD

Born in Albany, N.Y., Pete Hempstead moved to New York City in 1995 to write the Great American Novel. As an undergrad, he auditioned for, but did not get, a role in a university production of Peter Shaffer's Amadeus and instead eagerly took a job as a stagehand. Pete received his M.A. in English from Brooklyn College, where he wrote his master's thesis on the role of wine in Shakespeare's plays. He has taught English and literature at several city colleges and worked for years in the wine industry. He's pretty good at Scrabble and is getting better at the New York Times crossword — and he's still working on that novel.
