Peter Glassborow

New Zealand

Peter was born in London but his family immigrated to New Zealand when he was a teenager.

After working at various jobs, including 20 years in the New Zealand army, he took a correspondence course in creative writing. Full of ambition began sending submissions to publishers and agents. This was the beginning of his extensive collection of (mostly) rejection slips.

Finally success!!! In February 2010 HER, an NZ woman’s magazine, made a short story their monthly winner. Peter was still getting over the euphoria of winning that when three days later Hearts on Fire, an American publisher (now Solstice Publishing), offered him a contract for a paranormal novel.

Over the last ten years or so as well as Solstice he has through Amazon self-published a spooky novel, a volume of paranormal short stories and a historical action-adventure trilogy. A sci-fi book was published in 2018 by Elsewhen Press and this year a short story in Night Terrors Vol 10 anthology and another short story was accepted by Carmina Magazine.

Peter writes in paranormal, sci-fi, historical, humorous, and children/YA genre and is a member of the New Zealand Society of Authors.

Now retired Peter concentrates on not getting up early to go to work, writing and doing nothing much at all.
