About the author:
Peter Gray was born in Toronto, Canada. He holds a bachelor’s degree in History and Education but has always felt the lure of classic English literature. Peter published his first story in 2020; a paranormal romance called “Cursed.” His first full length novel “The Tragic Tale of Teddy Woven” was released in the month of September 2020. As a self-published author, Peter specializes in the genres of Gothic horror, paranormal romance, and historical fiction. His first historical romance novel “Awakening” will debut in the month of March 2021.
In his spare time Peter loves to read and write poetry. He also enjoys going out into the wilderness with his trusty camera and his well-withered book full of John Keats poems on those treasured grey over-cast days.
What inspired you to write your book?
Awakening was inspired by several historical novels including Tess of D' Ubervilles, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and Madame Bovary. Much of the plot line was based off my conversations with friends about the problem of having amazing sexual chemistry with someone, but knowing in your heart that it will not make them an ideal partner for you. I wanted to explore issues of morality, sexual repression, seduction, and the expected roles women must adapt during the Regency era.
