Peter Henri was born and grew up in Sydney, Australia. He spent time as a young adult travelling and working in Queensland and the Northern Territory before returning to Sydney where he married. After the birth of his son, he and his wife moved to the rural coastal area, south of Adelaide in South Australia. They had a hardware business and a wholesale tool business before Peter trained to become a life insurance agent.
Peter entered the Flinders University in South Australia where he studied sociology and psychology. Peter also studied Transactional Analysis and Gestalt Therapy. He was also part owner of a coffee lounge, the reason for that according to him is that it was the only way he could get a proper Italian-style cappuccino.
Peter moved to the Northern Territory over twenty years ago where he enrolled at the Northern Territory University, that is now the Charles Darwin University. He graduated as a Social Worker and has worked as a mental health professional in the alcohol and other drugs field and in mental health, in various parts of the Northern Territory and north and north-west Queensland.
A little over two years after he started his career in social work, he contracted laryngeal cancer, and it is the story of that, the treatment and the recovery from it that makes up the contents of this book.
He continues to work in the mental health field and now lives in the Darwin rural area where he continues to enjoy the tropical climate that he refers to as Paradise.
