About Peter Jones, Author
Harper Collins published author - but I haven't always been. Six years ago I was frumpy, grumpy, and working in banking industry. How I got from there to here is an entertaining tale. I am no stranger to After Dinner Speaking and have given well over 100 talks in the last 2yrs. Based in Essex but happy to consider travelling.
I love public speaking. And these days rarely a week goes by when I’m not invited to speak at a WI, TWG, U3A, Round Table, or some other group, and I’d be delighted to come to yours. My first talk (entitled: How To Do Everything And Be Happy) tells the story of how I came to write my How To books, how I landed a book deal with audible and Harper Collins, as well as how I met my wife Kate and the influence that she had on my life. It’s all pretty light hearted, with a couple of surprises along the way. Thirty minutes in I usually throw it open to questions and let the audience determine where we go from there. My follow up talk (entitled: How I met Kylie Minogue) tells the story of what happened after I’d written my How To books, how I came to write my first novel, and how Kylie broke down outside my house and needed to use my telephone – or would have done if there was any justice in this universe. Again, it’s 30ish minutes of light hearted nonsense. (Please note that my talk isn't really suitable for small children)
