About Me:
Peter A. J. Quatrine is a British-born author. He grew up - and continues to live - in East London.

The road to the written word was not an easy one; as a child, Peter was diagnosed with dyslexia and mild Asperger - school was an uphill battle that, nevertheless, he seemed determined to conquer. Finding ways to adapt to printed language, Peter was soon pilfering the finest of novels from the shelves of his parents and elder sister (even if some of the books were for a university course, and said sister was wondering where her volume of Homer's 'The Iliad' had disappeared to before a seminar!)

Eventually, having traversed the plains of mandatory schooling, Peter himself moved onto the wider world of University. The degree: Games Design and Story Development. The aim: to capitalise on his secondary passion of computer games (you name it - he probably has it!) The place: University of East London's Docklands campus. During this time, Peter was involved in many presentations and talks about special educational needs and the importance of inclusion for such students and adults. It was also around this time that his idea for a story began its permutations in his mind - 'The Chronicles of the Dragon Sisters' was in its making.

After much slogging and sleepless nights, the publishing pathway was in sight...back and forth the script went - additions, subtractions and many a re-working formed the backbone of the first novel. The climate however rendered the story not quite ready for the current market - so instead, plan B was to kick in. As much as the modern world may have its flaws, its technology is endless; and so the digital copy was born.

Peter's debut novel, 'The Chronicles of the Dragon Sisters' has a growing fan-base, and is out now, worldwide, on the Amazon Kindle store.

Of Intro and Dragon Sisters

Hello everyone, 

I'd like to open this blog in a somewhat generic fashion by shameless plugging my book. However, this blog with, at later dates, offer extracts of writing that expand on characters, discuss characters and plots and even host some of my art work. So, if you're a fan of fantasy, young adult fiction, or writing in general feel free to follow and harass me on this blog, and to buy book... that would be really, really swell and helpful :) 

The book…

Hi!

Welcome to Book Blogs! I'm Kate, a young adult author. My debut novel Taste has just been released by Crescent Moon Press last April 30, 2012. 


At Barinkoff Academy, there's only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by a mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes, and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters. Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans.

When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn’t realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.

Grab your copy now at:

Amazon

I hope you enjoy your stay here! Lots of great people and interesting topics. If there's anything you might need, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my page.

Sincerely,

Kate
