Peter, tell us where you were born and where do you live now?
I was born in Bromley Kent, EnglandÂ and I now live only a few miles down the road in Sidcup, Kent.
What makes you passionate about writing?
I love watching a story grow. Tending the characters and seeing where they take me.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Dead Medium took about two years to write. I put it aside for months at at time on a few occasions but always found myself returning to it when the opportunity arose.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
Initially it was just going to be a short story based on the premise of a reverse medium but May Trump was having none of it. There was no stopping her once she got going.
What is the title of your book?
Could you give us a back cover blurb?
The deathly silence is about to be broken. She disliked the company of others and death did little to warm her spirit. She had led an independent life and she faced death in much the same way. She was finally alone, finally free from the mindless babble of others, at least that’s what she thought. May Elizabeth Trump was the rarest of spirits and she was none too happy about it either. She was a dead medium, a ghost who can speak with the living, and her services were to become in great demand. Flung into the limelight and smothered with unwanted attention, May soon discovers that it is not only ghosts with long awaited messages that have taken an interest in her. Something dark was lurking in the shadows, stalking her. Even the dead are not left to rest in peace. Dead Medium: A humorous, character driven story and a unique vision of life after death. Not your average ghost story.
What genre does your book fall under?
Do you have a favorite character, why?
In truth, I have no favourites. They each have their individual foibles which endear them to me.
What kind of impact do you expect your works to have in the reader’s lives?
I wouldn’t be so bold to assume my book will impact anyone life as such but I hope it will bring a smile to a few faces.
What else might pique the readerâ€™s interest in your book?
It has humour, well developed characters and a unique plot. I have been told by many readers that it is completely different to anything else they’ve read before.
