After the publication of The Children That Time Forgot in 1983, Mary and Peter went on to write a successful trilogy of books about the paranormal including Mystic Forces - Out of the body experiences and Spinechiller - True Ghost Stories from around the world.
Mary and Peter wrote twelve books together including a series of commercial hobby books. Mary also penned The Eye of the Daruma, a book about a Japanese girl and her life adventures. Later titles included The Ladies' Man, about her favourite novelist, the famous Thomas Hardy.
Mary made several popular appearances on TV & radio discussing supernatural phenomena. Notably, when appearing on ITV's This Morning in 1989, the volume of phone calls was so overwhelming, viewer’s responses jammed the ITV switchboard. Mary was also a featured psychic consultant on LBC Radio for three years during the 1980s with broadcaster Pete Murray.
Peter organised a national tour of radio and TV stations for Mary, including an interview on the famous Late Late Show on RTE in Dublin. Mary passed away in 2002 after a short illness and is survived, and greatly missed, by Peter and their five children.
Peter started, aged seventeen, as a trainee cameraman and film editor at ITV. In 1960, as London’s music scene was experiencing rapid change, he opened his rock agency College Ents in Archer Street, Piccadilly. Artistes Peter worked with included Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Who, David Bowie and Rod Stewart.
Peter continues to work as an author and producer in London. In 2014, an adaptation for screen was undertaken and Peter has collaborated with the Scottish film director and cinematographer John Charles Brownlie to produce a feature film pilot. It’s called Child Time Forgot and is based on the theme of the book. Work is currently underway to develop the feature length film, bringing the poignant subject matter of the best-selling book to the screen.
