Peters has done it again...his talent in taking you along as if you're talking to a new pal you've just met in a bar, with great short stories...captivating, very very funny, and written in a highly individualistic style...I've downloaded all of his recent offerings, and found all of them equally highly entertaining..treat yourselves..

Like 'Solo' a book of highly amusing short stories, and some very observant ones at that. Indeed, I can see why I'm such a fan, it's obvious that I've found somebody who seems to be able to read my thoughts in some situations.

Do keep them coming...please...

Born in the swamps of Glamorgan, I have wandered the world, generally with a guitar in hand.
Here I am in a beautiful village in central Spain, where the sun shines, the lake is warm, the drink is cheap and the people and animals are friendly.
I share my place with two gorgeous local cats, more guitars than I can count and a fridge full of wine.
Oh, and I write stories. Many of them about Otis King,
