About the Author
Pete was born in Birmingham in 1951. He did very well at school at infant and junior level then was unfortunate enough to attend an all boy’s school run by a brutal Headmaster who had been an ex Borstal Governor. Pete gradually withdrew into himself and his education suffered. He eventually left school without taking any exams. For many years’ he became an anti- educationalist.
A Carpenter by trade he gradually lifted his stance against education and having taken the appropriate exams required to become an instructor he spent the last ten years of his working life teaching construction at an upper school near Leicester.
Largely self-taught he developed a passion for reading, particularly poetry, and became a member of the Leicester Poetry Society. This children’s book was inspired by his four Grandchildren. The Insect Makers is his first venture into the world of children’s books.
