Peter Oredsson was born and raised in Hasslehom, Sweden. He completed only nine years of compulsory schooling with marks well below the average standard. This forced him into hard labour jobs in different factories. At the age of only sixteen years, he moved away from home and became self-sufficient. As a twenty-three-year-old, Peter migrated alone to Australia. He did not have a great knowledge of the English language, but that did not stop him from finding gainful employment and a wife who blessed him with two children. He had natural tendencies towards sales and marketing and persuaded a multi-national industrial company to employ him as a technical sales representative. This created an interest in further education and, after seven years at night school, he graduated with a degree in business, majoring in marketing. This provided him with the opportunity to mix with the business elite around the world as a Marketing Manager, Global Sales Manager and Managing Director. He also acted as a marketing consultant to many major international companies through his own company. The Sicilian Favour is Peter's third published book. His previous books Blood-Line Incursion and Peeta Oreda and the Power of Numbers are works of children's fiction and they were published in 2009 and 2010 respectively.
