Peter Gray has been writing in various guises since he was twelve years old and he has never been able to stop. Many years before his introduction to a typewriter or a PC, his books and stories were hand written and some still survive, one of those found its way into paperback.
His first 'Sam Series' book "A Certain Summer" has had excellent reviews, one from TV presenter and ex England soccer coach Bob Wilson who grew up in the same area and could easily identify with the characters in the book.
The sequel 'Sam's Kingdom' follows the further adventures of Sam but Peter has also produced a poetry book, 'With Feeling'.
His recent work included the celebrated 'Avalon Series' which is finding its way across the globe.
He has recently also announced another Scottish based, historical adventure series that is being called 'The Black Thistle Series'.
With many short stories, articles and celebrated Mummers Plays plus many touring productions under his belt. Peter is always busy writing something or other. He has also acted in and directed some of those productions and one such production played at Warwick Castle for six full seasons.

He has now embarked on a series of books called 'The Avalon Series' of which more details can be found on this website. He now lives on the east coast of Sutherland in the Highlands of Scotland.

I have just been on vacation in Scotland, I went to see the country but ended up sitting and reading The Drums of Drumnadrochit and Auld Clootie back to back! Brilliant. - Alison Durrens, Canada.
A month ago we visited Loch Ness for holidays and we bought The Drums of Drumnadrochit at the Loch Ness Exhibition Centre. My wife read the book in only a few days, was very enthusiastic and is anxious to read new "adventures", so we would be very happy to receive a copy of Auld Clootie at my address in Germany. - Bert Zandvliet, Germany.
