Peter Jones started professional life as a particularly rubbish graphic designer, followed by a stint as a mediocre petrol pump attendant. After that he got embroiled in the murky world of credit card banking. Fun times.
Now, Peter spends his days - most of them, anyway - writing.
His latest book "The Good Guy's Guide to Getting The Girl" is his début novel. It wasn't a 'historical' romance when he started out - it just took that long to write. The sequel (snappily entitled "The Good Guy's Guide To Keeping The Girl") is currently sitting on his desk. Waiting to be edited. Occasionally it seems to wink.
He is also the author of three and a half popular self-help books on the subjects of happiness, staying slim and dating. If you're overweight, lonely, or unhappy - he's your guy.
Peter doesn't own a large departmental store and probably isn't the same guy you've seen on the TV show Dragons' Den.
