About Peter Whitaker

I am someone who has a profound interest in life and all the many and diverse subjects that it has to offer. I live and work in the East Riding of Yorkshire, a citizen of the forgotten city of Kingston Upon Hull. I was educated at Coleg Harlech, Gwynedd, North Wales, an institution that gave me so much, including a deeper appreciation of literature and a journey into Philosophy.
Eugenica is a book I started work on as a means of promoting a positive image of the disabled. As a disabled person myself I am only too aware how we can be totally misrepresented, whether wilfully or otherwise, by the media. It is a blend of adventure, dark science fiction, and an awful lot of referencing to things popular in the 1930’s that I still enjoy today.
I am happily married with two children. I dream of being a full-time author and I would like to see my football team Hull City win the Premier League title one day.

About the Series: The Sorrow Song Trilogy
The great battles of 1066 are the backdrop against which the Sorrow Song Trilogy is told. Coenred, a huscarl, is the warrior who strides over all three battlefields. In The War Wolf he fights at Fulford Gate alongside his lords, the brothers Eorl Edwin of Mercia and Eorl Morcar of Northumbria. King Hardrada of Norway has invaded the north of England with the largest Viking army ever to set foot in the kingdom. For Rapture of Ravens sees Coenred returns to fight at Stamford Bridge. King Harold has marched north in 5 days to rescue the captured city of York. Finally, Coenred finds himself in the south of England to stand with his king, Harold Godwinson, at Sentlach Ridge, near the town of Hastings. Before them amasses the army of the invader, Duke Guillaume of Normandy, an enemy they have not fought against before. Rich in historical detail, impeccably researched, the Sorrow Song Trilogy brings to life England's apocalyptic year of 1066. Events are seen from the perspective of both historical personages and fictional characters who occupy lower the levels of social classes of their times.
