British writer of Speculative Fiction, SF, Fantasy Fiction, and mysteries. He was born and spent his childhood in Zambia, went to Cambridge and worked at Punch for many years until writing his first novel.
Has an excellent sense of humor about himself. His online bio begins:
"Peter Dickinson ...is a tall, elderly, bony, beaky, wrinkled sort of fellow, with a lot of untidy grey hair and a weird hooting voice – in fact he looks and sounds a bit like Gandalf’s crazy twin, but he’s only rather absent-minded, probably because he’s thinking about something else. Day-dreaming, mostly."
Married to the American writer Robin Mc Kinley; they live in the South of England.
