Inspirational Indie Author Interview. Peter Turnham: Dyslexic Author Conquers His Personal Everest

My ALLi author guest this episode is Peter Turnham, who has dyslexia, which means that he has difficulty reading and interpreting words. It seems like an unlikely condition for a writer. But Peter has spent his life proving that he can overcome any obstacle. Peter says the odds of him becoming a writer were about as great as climbing Mount Everest. But I’ll let Peter tell the story of how and why he climbed to the peak, anyway.

Inspirational Indie Author Interview. Peter Turnham: About the Author

Born and brought up in London, Peter Turnham now lives in the English Cotswold hills with his wife and collaborator Carol, in the house which he personally built while also running a well-known Dental Laboratory, plus breeding rainbow trout in a hatchery for stocking into their own lakes for their small fishing syndicate.. They have three adult children and four young grandchildren. Peter is involved with a range of activities as varied as fly fishing and cabinet making using his favorite wood, which is English oak, and since 2012 he and Carol have operated a 5* holiday cottage. He is also interested in many aspects of science, including the environment and climate change. However, of all his many interests, and despite his dyslexia, he finds that writing has now become his number one passion. He has published four novels so far, and further novels will follow.
