Peter Lihou was raised on the island of Guernsey into a family so entwined in the local history, he shares his name with one of the islands that is connected to Guernsey by a causeway. The wartime occupation of the islands remains a part of the local psyche, with visible reminders on most headlands, and this has inspired much of his writing. In a career spanning over forty years, Peter started his own businesses and worked in the management team of international corporations before hanging up his suit to become a writer. He has written two successful novels independently and collaborated with a group of international writers on a third. Peter now lives in Cornwall with his wife and family. When not writing, he is usually found sailing a traditional craft around the coast and out to sea.
