Meet the Author

Welcome to my Smashwords page; I'm UK based indie author Pete Buckley, hailing from the Cheshire village of Lymm though I currently live in Blackburn Lancashire - that's the one with all the holes in that Beatles song. I am pleased to say that my first novel, "The Colonel of Krasnoyarsk" is finally finished and is available right here at Smashwords. Prior to becoming immersed in the adventures of our intrepid hero Yuri Medev, I wrote travel stories about various wonderful places such as New Zealand and the Swiss Alps. They too will be available here after some much needed re editing.Aside from writing, I've always loved travel and it was a trip to New Zealand in '05 that inspired me to write my first book. Hiking and the outdoors take up much of my time when I'm not helping to look after the kids while my photographic efforts are on display in the Mountain Landscapes gallery which is now being updated again. Okay that's me and thanks for visiting.Pete Buckley October 2013
