Meet the Author

Writing has always been a passion of Peter's and in 1996 he left the Canadian Armed Forces and became a Technical Writer and he's been writing ever since.

His first novel "The Secrets of Harden Long," a romantic comedy, was his first published novel and was written in 72 hours at the Great Canadian Winter Novel Writing Marathon.

His second book, "Malinki the Medic" was written about his father's life as a boy during the Second World War. Add to that his recently released novel 2066 and you can see Peter has been busy writing.

Peter's first love is writing but he has enjoyed some success as an actor as well. His love of travel has found him working in different parts of the world, returning to North America to act in the odd film and writing novels in his spare time.
