Howard Pease (1894-1974) was an American writer of adventure stories from Stockton, California. Most of his stories revolved around a young protagonist, William Todhunter (Tod) Moran who shipped out on tramp freighters during the interwar years. For most of his life Pease resided in the San Francisco area, except for those times when he shipped out as a member of the crew on a freighter, searching for new material.

In addition to writing childrens stories Pease taught high school, contributed to journals and reviewed books for the New York Times. Russell Freedman, Michael Dirda and E. L. Doctorow all cited Peases stories as childhood influences. Reflected Dirda: For a long period also I sought out the work of Howard Pease, old-fashioned nautical adventures teeming with frequent and arcane allusions to bilge, Lascars and focsles.

Freedman, who won the Newbery Medal and valued realism and accuracy in childrens writing, called Pease his literary hero.
