Peter Orullian is an American fantasy author and musician. He currently resides in Seattle, Washington. He has had a variety of musical endeavors, beginning with involvement in an a cappella choir in high school.
Orullian graduated from the University of Utah with a BA Honors in English in 1991. He has since published short stories in various anthologies, including stories which are set in Aeshau Vaal, the fictional world of book The Unremembered. James Frenkel has written, "When I first read Peter Orullian's early draft of The Unremembered, I was attracted by the characters, and then by mysteries in the story that made me feel I absolutely had to find out what was going on. Then, as I read more, I realized that I was hooked on his world, which has a rich history and culture, as well as some surprises I couldn't have anticipated."
Orullian's musical endeavors include involvement in the Keep it True tour in Germany with Heir Apparent and creating albums with Inner Resonance and Continuum. In 2010 he took the stage with Fifth Angel as a guest vocalist.
