Born in Manchester, England, the writer grew up against a background of rainy avenues, cold
weather and laughs. The decent, genuine and caring people of the time had much influence
on our man as everything seemed to be viewed with a smile.

Having lived and worked in many areas of the world Peter Dorney now lives in Singapore from
where he writes novels under the 'Typical English Humour' genre.

Two of his four books available on Smashwords are set in Singapore...another is set in Bali and the
fourth in Manchester. Humour is the common thread throughout all the works...and anyone who
enjoys English Humour will find his work an uplifting joy to read.

Peter Dorney now heads laughingly into his dotage under tropical skies...while still churning out the laughs in enjoyable
books, any of which would make a smashing film...or four.
