Peter Child

Biography

Peter James Child commenced his writing career in 1969 when he contributed 60 ‘one line’ comedy gags each week to an American Radio show called ‘FUNNYBIRDS’, which starred Goldie Hawn and Phyllis Diller. After meeting Terry Nation, the creator of ‘DR. WHO’, at a Writers Meeting, he was introduced to Alastair Scott-Johnson, the BBC Producer, and as a result of this meeting, the BBC commissioned a Radio comedy series of 9 programs, which Peter co-wrote, called ‘THE MOTORWAY MEN’, starring Milo O’Shea.

After this, he turned to writing books and produced three technical books on the subject of Automotive Paint Finishes whilst he was the Quality Control Manager and Chief Test Driver at Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd. The books were sold world wide and are used in many technical colleges, universities as well as major motor manufacturers such as Jaguar Cars Ltd for training. He then wrote ‘NOTES FOR GOOD DRIVERS’ for drivers of all abilities in the hope that this book would make a contribution to road safety. He used his training as a private pilot to carry forward his ideas of ‘safety style’ driving, which he believes has enabled him to drive safely for more than 3 million miles in the UK, Europe and the USA.

Now a full time author he has written 32 books, 5 technical and 27 novels, all of which will be available in due course through Smashwords in E book form.

Peter has also written 15 murder mystery crime novels set in Victorian London just before the Jack the Ripper murders in Whitechapel in 1888. Inspector James Hadley is assisted by Sergeant Robert Cooper and they are based in the newly formed detective department in Scotland Yard and together they solve the unusual crimes that confront them.

He has finished writing a series of racy thrillers, which are entitled, ‘THE DISPOSER’ followed by ‘THE DEAD DROP’ and then ‘A FLIGHT WITH DEMONS’ and his latest racy thriller, ‘THE FEMALE TRIGGER’, which is now available as an E book through Smashwords. The story is about a glamorous, young American widow searching for her brother, who is a CIA Agent missing in Libya. Peter is now writing a sequel to ‘THE FEMALE TRIGGER’ which will be available as an E book through Smashwords.
