Author InfoPeter Knyte was born and grew up in North Staffordshire, England, where more by chance than design he first stumbled across the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, Arthur Ransome of Swallows & Amazons fame, David’s Gemmell and Eddings through their Legend and Belgariad series, and met Jonathan Livingstone Seagull through the eponymously named title by Richard Bach.
North Staffordshire and the Staffordshire Moorlands are also where Peter developed his love of walking and the countryside.
After leaving Staffordshire, Peter moved to Middlesbrough, Birmingham, London and Leeds during which time he grew to love Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comics, Asimov’s Foundation series, and Rider Haggards tales of She Who Must be Obeyed and King Solomon’s Mines.
Peter still lives in Leeds, West Yorkshire, where he continues to enjoy walking and the countryside, as well as gardening, motorcycling, rock climbing, snowboarding and cooking.
Hmm, considering entering one of my books into the Clive Cussler Adventure Writers Competition. Little bit of work to prepare the MS for submission. But my 'to do' list is only as long as my arm!
But tired today, so popped out for a coffee and overheard the elderly lady in front of me, as she ordered two cups of tea with green milk! She's either a witch, or wanted semi - skimmed.
