As a member of the Alliance of Independent Authors, I have recently been interviewed by Howard Lovy for his podcast.

I understand that the reason I was approached was because, despite the fact that I am dyslexic, I have recently been very successful in self-publishing four novels.  I had always described the odds of becoming a writer were about as great as me climbing Mount Everest! I am very slow to read anything, and have a short attention span for reading anything other than facts, as opposed to fiction. It never ceases to amaze me that writing could ever have become my number one passion!

My message to all is IF I CAN DO IT, YOU CAN DO IT!

Inspirational Indie Author Interview. Peter Turnham: About the Author

Born and brought up in London, Peter Turnham now lives in the English Cotswold hills with his wife and collaborator Carol, in the house which he personally built while also running a well-known Dental Laboratory, plus breeding rainbow trout in a hatchery for stocking into their own lakes for their small fishing syndicate.. They have three adult children and four young grandchildren. Peter is involved with a range of activities as varied as fly fishing and cabinet making using his favorite wood, which is English oak, and since 2012 he and Carol have operated a 5* holiday cottage. He is also interested in many aspects of science, including the environment and climate change. However, of all his many interests, and despite his dyslexia, he finds that writing has now become his number one passion. He has published four novels so far, and further novels will follow.
