Andrew Fusek Peters, Polly Peters - Authors

Andrew Fusek Peters is an Anglo Czech poet, author, anthologist, storyteller, didgeridoo player, broadcaster and creative writing tutor. He has written and edited over 30 books for Hodder-Wayland, Harper Collins, Ginn, Narefoot Books, Bloodaxe and Evans. These books include Poems with attitude, Sadderday and Funday and May the Angels Be With Us.

Andrew and his collaborator Polly Peters, an English and Drama teacher, are no strangers to poetry and novels but this appears to be their first venture into the "poetry novel".

Crash was published in 2004. Andrew and Polly both live in Shropshire. The rural area influenced the novel. The story is set in the countryside, and speeding is the main theme - trying to make young people aware of the dangers of speed, and importance of road safety.

It's a long way from Enid Blyton.
