Peter was born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland, during a phase that has become known as ‘the troubles’. He was educated at Saint Coleman’s College, Violet Hill, Newry, which he attended as a boarding pupil. He hated it and is proud that he managed to get expelled and escape the place he knew as Violent Hell.
After serving in the RAF, for a good number of years, where being included on the crew list for 92 Squadron, the most famous squadron in the RAF, is counted as the high point of his RAF career and not the multiple promotions or awards received from the New Year’s Honours list.
Life after the RAF was difficult as Peter tried to establish himself as a professional writer. He was encouraged by Carol Anne Duffy, the present Poet Laureate, and eventually settled as a ghost writer for major celebrities working through a leading London literary agent.
Changing direction again Peter has decided to write for himself and embraces new technology and how it can benefit writers and their careers. Under his own name Peter has been published in newspapers and magazines, written for the radio, won numerous writing awards and competitions and is now hoping to attain a certain level of success through new technology.
Peter has a BSc (hons) in accountancy and management and when not writing is a very creative candle maker, focusing on a Celtic style. His candle company is known as Celtic Illumination and he declares that he is the only person in the world to make ‘real’ tartan candles.
