August 2010


Living in a small village in Lancashire, England, the author has written a number of books based on the tale 'Peter'.

In the 1990s, the author had twenty-one articles published, both nationally and internationally. After gaining an honours degree in Geosciences, doing post-graduate study in Occupational Health and Fitness, and earning a masters degree in Science Communication, he developed an interest for simple communication.

A passion for writing again emerged, and combining various interests in fine art, museum exhibition display, biology, geology, poetry, and the mystical led to the story of Peter: A Darkened Fairytale. The author still retains a childlike vision of the world, which is conveyed throughout his books.

“A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest.”
C.S. Lewis

“In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die:
Ever drifting down the stream- Lingering in the golden gleam- Life, what is it but a dream?”
Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass

“One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.”
Lewis Carroll

“All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, ‘Oh, why can’t you remain like this for ever!’ This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end.”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy tale.”
Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There

William O'Brien Hi Monisa- Moonlight Sonata... super! Must admit I haven't done much poetry (nothing since the ones in the book- sorry). The poems were a handful of strange ideas that worked themselves in at the end- just to give additional information for the characters. Thanks for asking. Have a great day!
