Peter was born in Manchester, UK, and educated at Manchester Grammar School, not one of its more outstanding pupils. Indeed, it is rumoured on his departure, a collective relieved sigh of relief was heard through the hallowed cloisters of that prestigious establishment.
Following tertiary studies in forestry, Peter spent much of his career in the forestry profession, migrating to rural Western Australia at mid-life as a manager of the wood-chipping industry.
Later, for the sake of our children’s education, he moved to Perth, WA, taking a managerial role in the precast concrete industry.
Approaching retirement, Peter studied horticulture and, with his daughter, set up a landscape design business specialising in water-efficient gardens.
Peter is married, with a son, a daughter and four grandsons all living locally – a closely knit family. His pursuits are gardening, bowling, canoeing and striking slightly dangerous activities off his bucket list.
Now retired, Peter has set about writing novels as this has been a lifelong ambition of his. This his second published novel.
