Wallis Peel is the writer of numerous published books, short stories and newspaper features. She is a long-established member of the Society of Authors.
She had the normal working-class education of her era but she hated school and left at fourteen. She spent one miserable year in offices then followed her heart’s desire to work with horses. She started at the bottom of the pile and worked her way up as she gained experience and knowledge. She started writing in her late twenties, then had gaps because of one thing or another but always, at the back of her mind, was the desire to write.
Recent books include Sea Gem, set in Guernsey, Republic set in Bristol and Yate, Bold Spirit, Glorious Gloucestershire, Spirit of Defiance, Battle of Defiance and Pride of Mercia. Sea Gem is also available as an unabridged audiotape published by Isis, and all the novels are available in large print. Written under the name of H M Peel, two her most famous horse books, Jago, and Fury, Son of the Wild are now reissued in paperback, and Law of the Wild is available as an e-book.
