Author Biography

Living in a small village in Lancashire, England, the author has written a number of books based on the tale 'Peter'.

In the 1990s, the author had twenty-one articles published, both nationally and internationally. After gaining an honours degree in Geosciences, doing post-graduate study in Occupational Health and Fitness, and earning a masters degree in Science Communication, he developed an interest for simple communication.

A passion for writing again emerged, and combining various interests in fine art, museum exhibition display, biology, geology, poetry, and the mystical led to the story of Peter: A Darkened Fairytale. The author still retains a childlike vision of the world, which is conveyed throughout his books.

Reviewed by Lisa Jones for Readers' Favorite

Peter: The World by William O'Brien is a wonderful collection of short poems and tiny thoughts. The book is separated into two parts, The Light and The Dark. Each part is unique in its entirety and each is as mesmerizing. The Light examines the delightful topics of fairy tales and some inspiring thoughts. The words 'fluffy' and 'pretty' spring to mind as the poems are so well presented and very eloquent. In contrast to this, we then examine The Dark where the author delves into darker tales where vampires and evil spirits roam. This is my favourite half by far as we are given an insight into this superior world.

William O'Brien delivers a beautiful piece of his unique work in the form of this book entitled Peter: The World. It cleverly combines some wonderful extracts of poetry with small thoughts. The two complement each other as The Light and The Dark. The poetry is sublime and put together in such a way that the reader is drawn into this world immediately. My favourite piece of The Light was the piece about the grandfather clock. It felt reassuring and light, leaving me in a complete state of happiness. Just as the author delivers such a beautiful collection, he also then gives us The Dark. In this selection of poems and thoughts, the reader again finds themselves transported into the words held between the pages. I found these small poems and thoughts to be very exciting and fresh. This book is one of my favorites to date and I like the way it is well balanced yet classic. It contained some wonderful and elegant passages and it was a highly uplifting read.
