About the Author

Writing has always been in Peter Cruikshank’s blood. His love of writing started in his early teens when he cut his teeth on Sci-Fi and the passion never left him. Peter lives in Southern California with his beautiful and fetching wife, along with two exceedingly talkative cats.

At an early age, Peter was introduced to Robert Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land and has been an avid reader ever since. As a teen, he picked up a copy of Lord of the Rings and expanded his love of reading to include Medieval Fantasy. By 18 years of age, he knew he wanted to be an author. It remained a dream until 2012 when he turned his energy full-time to writing.

Outside of writing he obtained a Master of Science in Information Systems while working in the private & public sectors, academia, and the field of ministry. His diverse work life has provided a wealth of experience that has helped him to understand his characters and the way in which they deal with their trials and tribulations – overcoming obstacles that transform their lives. The process of how some characters fail, and others rise above their own expectations, mimics his personal life. The passion and fire of a life led without regret is what he hopes to bring to his stories. As the Dragon-Called tell us:

Stay True to Your Fire Within!

Peter believes stories are about the characters and the movement of them through some adventure or experience. That is why he focuses on character development and writes the action as he pictures it in his mind – a big 4K, 3D movie. This is probably why when he talks about his novels he has said, “I write books for those who believe there is something more!”
