Pete Sortwell

Biography

Pete is 32 and lives with his wife, Lucie, and their pet sofa, Jeff. He's been writing for just under three years and they've been pretty eventful; well, more eventful than he thought sitting on Jeff, typing, would be, anyway.

First published in the Radgepacket anthology with a story he'd written during month five of his new hobby, Pete's now featured in a total of ten different anthologies and has been amongst some very fine company. (Although I've been the best in all of them, I know that because both my Mum and Jeff told me and they're both honest-to-God Christians ... possibly.)

Author of comedy e-books 'The Village Idiot Reviews', 'The Office Idiot Reviews' and 'The Idiot Government Reviews', 'More Village idiot Reviews.' These books sell more than he ever thought they would, and he's hooked. 'Dating in the Dark' is Pete's first self-published novel. His traditionally published novel, 'So Low, So High', was published by Caffeine Nights in June 2013.

We’ve all seen the news over the last few years, watching in wonder and disbelief at the situations the people entrusted to run the country get themselves into and then proceed to lie their way out of. Just imagine, and this won’t be hard, that they were so stupid that they wrote reviews of the items that got them into or out of their latest bit of trouble and posted them online. Ted Williebond
