Peter Locke retired after 50 years as a television producer, director and studio cameraman.
As a young child, Peter was always an avid storyteller. He was constantly being asked by his teachers to tell his stories to the rest of the class.
This passion for storytelling continued into Peter’s adult years, which led him to a career in the entertainment industry.
His vivid imagination, combined with more than half a century in a creative workspace, finally made him decide to focus on writing fiction, so he can share his stories with the rest of the world.
People have always appreciated Peter’s off-beat sense of humour and unique points of view, which have made his writing style stand out beyond the conventional norm.
Peter’s first series of books is aimed at a younger audience, both boys and girls, who enjoy science fiction. The series is about Mikkee the Martian, who comes to Earth for research and relaxation. Shortly after he arrives, he meets twins, Billy and Jilly Watson, whom he befriends and then embarks upon several, exciting adventures with.
The Mikkee the Martian series is funny, moving and full of surprises. The books are a must-read for any child between the ages and 6 and 12, though older siblings and relatives might find themselves chuckling along too. They make the perfect bedtime story!
Watch this space as future books in the Mikkee the Martian series are released, along with other stories from Peter Locke’s compelling penmanship.
