Working in the NHS as a nurse, therapist, supervisor & educator both informed and competed with Peter’s work as a poet; when push came to shove it tended to win the competition.

The Time to Write award enabled him to take extended leave from that work starting to walk to Camino route to Santiago de Compostela. The first part of that break got him started on the poems that made up the core of his collection, The Book of Ogham, and the overall experience led to his semi retirement from clinical work in order to concentrate on writing.
