Peter DeHaan’s Mission is to Change the World One Word at a Time
Peter DeHaan’s writing career spans three decades, having published hundreds of articles and authored four academic works, with multiple blogs and a growing number of books. Peter is an member of Word Weavers, American Christian Writers, and Platform University. He cofounded the Kalamazoo Christian Writers critique group.
Peter DeHaan has an MBA and PhD in business administration from Kennedy-Western University and a second PhD degree from Trinity College of the Bible and Trinity Theological Seminary, conferred on June 15, 2012, awarded “with high distinction,” and endorsed by Canterbury Christ Church University, England.
A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com. His popular blog addresses biblical spirituality, often with a postmodern twist. Peter DeHaan gives back to the writing community with his writer’s blog, Byline.
In 1983 Peter DeHaan published his first article, titled “All About Pagers,” in the now defunct tech magazine Radio Electronics. His second article, “Computers Track Down Intermodulation Interference,” appeared later that year in Mobile Radio Technology magazine, ironically as he labored through his college freshman writing class. This would be his only formal writing course; he persevered and earned an A.
Over time a passionate wordsmith emerged, who writes non-fiction, fiction, and memoir, as well as the occasional poem. He was a top-twenty winner for Imagine This! An ArtPrize Anthology. His personal essay, “The Seven Transformations of Peter DeHaan,” is part of The Transformation Project anthology. He is currently working on several books.
In 2001, Peter DeHaan founded Peter DeHaan Publishing, Inc., a periodical and website publisher. Peter serves as the president, publisher, and editor-in-chief of the print publication Connections Magazine; the e-zine AnswerStat; the e-publication, TAS Trader; and the e-newsletter, Medical Call Center News. Additionally he produces several information websites, including ArticleWeekly.com, which contains thousands of business related articles.
Peter DeHaan’s prior work experience includes telecommunication consulting, multi-location call center management, mergers and acquisitions, software programming, high-tech help desk management, technical writing, and project management. Peter also had brief stints as a television audio engineer, electronic music instrument technician, copy machine repairman, meat-processing plant lackey, and farm laborer. These experiences shaped Peter into who he is today and provide many fond—and some not so fond—memories, as well as ample writing material. He now focuses on writing and publishing.
Peter lives in Southwest Michigan, with his bride of three decades. They have two married children and three amazing grandchildren. Peter is an avid reader and podcast consumer. A movie buff who enjoys nature walks, Peter celebrates both as sensory experiences that feed his inner muse.
