Born close to Rotterdam, Netherlands, Peter graduated at the University of Groningen with a degree in History and International Law. After having acquired a business degree, Peter started his first job in telecommunications. Within this field, he covered various positions within product management, marketing and sales in various countries before he changed to consumer electronics. His last ‘normal’ job was as managing director for a large optical company.
After 18 years as an employee Peter decided to turn one of his passions (writing being the other one) into his job and opened his own dive resort in Asia. To stay in contact with friends and family Peter wrote extensive mails with small stories he experienced in his new home country. His audience became more and more interested in reading the local stories and urged Peter to write it all down in a book. In 2014 he finally gave in and published some of the stories in a novel - “Confusion”. Three additional sequels of the quartet “Nothing is what it seems” will follow later.
Peter is married and has two grown-up children.
