Peter Hey



Peter Hey has always written, but for 25 years he worked for the American multinational otherwise known as 'Big Blue', where his literary output was limited to technical reports and manuals, awash with acronyms, jargon and ordered lists. Eventually, he escaped the binary confines of an IT career and ran away to join a public library. In addition to his love for books and writing, Peter there rekindled his interest in genealogy, having first sketched out his family tree in the pre-Internet days of paper records and microfilm. His own past wouldn't quite let go, and as the librarian responsible for electronic services, he introduced online family history databases and ebook downloads alongside traditional library media.
After taking early retirement, he achieved a second long-term ambition with the publication of his debut novel, A Forest with no Trees, an unorthodox take on genealogical fiction. His is now working on a series of books featuring Jane Madden, one-time police detective turned professional genealogist.
Married with two grown-up sons and one gorgeous granddaughter, when Peter isn't writing his interests include tennis and petanque, which he is sometimes obliged to play left-handed because of a recalcitrant right elbow. He also rather enjoys ironing.
