Then came a BA in history and international relations at Nottingham followed by a Master of Philosophy course at the University of York. The subject was the generalship and cavalry of Prince Rupert of the Rhine, his boyhood hero, during the English Civil War. The year which he spent researching and writing at York, Oxford and at the British Library in London was a truly wonderful time.
Peter moved to London and eventually joined a small publishing company as an editor. Thus began his writing career.
