Peter Van Werkhoven was born into a large family of ten, and is the second youngest. He is the younger brother of Dan Van Werkhoven.
Peter started writing at a young age and was always keen on telling his older sisters his creations, though they were not always keen on hearing them. After signing up for a couple of Role Playing Games, he discovered that he really actually enjoyed writing and decided to take it seriously and try writing a book about one of his characters. A year later he completed the story and was already making plans for his next one.
A couple of years after that he decided to enter NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month),and came out with his novel 'The Story of Silence' which he has then published.
He dabbles in Free Verse Poetry and the occasional short story, but his plan is to write a full fantasy series which is already in the making.
He currently still lives at home in Australia, writing and daydreaming about all sorts of things.
