Peter Moon was born in London, England. He left school at an early age, drifting round the world on tramp steamers, but further education proved his salvation as he went on to study journalism. After a couple of junior positions with local newspapers, a fascination with horseracing meant he decided to specialize as a freelance writer in that sphere. He has worked as a reporter, a racing analyst, and for a while was linked with one of the major bookmakers, with whom he was a liaison officer. Over the past ten years he has been a freelance editor and copywriter as well as a contributor to various websites and publications.
He lives with his partner, Rosemary, in a small Hampshire village a few miles from the Berkshire border close to Newbury.
