Peter Cruikshank's formative years took place in the 60s and 70s; which probably explains his independent, and sometimes rebellious nature. Married with three grown children, he is retired from a career that encompassed the private & public sectors, academia, and even ministry. Though his wife claims he has not retired, just changed careers, once again, this time as an author. He attributes this varied work life to being easily bored.
At an early age, he was introduced to Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land and has been an avid reader ever since. As a teen, he picked up a copy of Lord of the Rings and expanded his love of reading to include Medieval Fantasy. By 18 years of age, he knew he wanted to be an author, but life got in the way, and his dreams were put on hold - until a few years ago, when he turned his energy to writing.
His diverse work life has provided a wealth of experience that has helped him to understand his characters, and how the way they deal with their trials and tribulations transform their lives. The process of how some characters fail, and others rise above their own expectations, mimics his personal life. The passion and fire of a life led without regret is what he hopes to bring to his stories. As the Dragon-Called Legend tells us:

Fire of the Covenant (Dragon-Called Legend)
Royal brother and sister twins learn they are Dragon-Called and empowered with magical abilities that put them in a battle between evil priests, who want to use the twins in their quest for world domination, and the Burning Lady, who requires that the twins fulfill a covenant that an ancestor of the twins made with the dragons. If only the magic of the Covenant doesn't kill them first.
