Peter Jessop


My career commenced at St. Martins Youth Theatre, in Melbourne, Australia, where I was born and raised. From there I went into TV and film working on many mini-series and feature films in the field of production, which in turn led into the area of screenplay writing. I have had a few scripts optioned as well as collaborating on more with other writers, directors and producers. I enjoy film, the theatre, music and books, and have continued to develop and hone my writing abilities over the years. I have a genuine passion for this art form and love the creativity of bringing words and images to life. In 2006 I had my first fiction novel "A God Named Joe" published, while my second book "The Gods Of War" came out in 2009. I have never locked myself into writing one specific genre as I am just into telling good stories, whether they be science-fiction, drama, romance, adult or children's. In the final analysis when all is said and done, the main point is that it is a good story regardless of what it is about.

Smashwords Interview

How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Through websites such as Smashwords or Author's Den.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
That would be back in primary school and although the details are some what hazy I do recall that I got a B- for it. But from what I do recall it was a horror story involving all the famous movie monsters.
