Peter is Kent born and bred with a love of words and books. After graduating in 2000 in English and Sociology, he went to Tokyo to teach English. This led to further study of teaching and a return to Japan for a second time.
Returning to the UK, he moved to York to work for an English school and after some years, relocated to Moscow to teach Business English.
2008 heralded another UK return, this time to London for teaching and eventual promotion to Head of Department at a prestigious international college.
After 17 years of teaching, 2017 was the turning point to change direction and career path. Training with the Publishing Training Centre and London School of Publishing, he volunteered at Aurora Metro Books, eventually being entrusted with researching and writing Virginia Woolf in Richmond which was published in November 2018.
Peter narrated two audiobooks for a comedy-mystery writer which was an enjoyable experience. His freelance career started taking off when he was asked to create content for ELT publishers, which continues to this day.
In May 2018, he accepted the part-time role of editor at Aurora Metro Books.
After leaving Aurora Metro, he has focused more on ELT work, with four publications for Express Publishing and other projects. He also writes exam papers for Anglia Examinations.
He is still interested in non-fiction writing and has dreams of being published in a non-fiction magazine, as well as writing short stories based on the lives of some of his ancestors.
