PETER ROBERTSON was born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, graduated from the University of East Anglia in the U.K., and came to the U.S. at age 23.
After traveling in the States, he settled in Chicago, where he has been a book and music reviewer for daily papers and magazines, stay-at-home dad, soccer coach, university student, and elementary and middle school teacher. He currently lives in Flossmoor and teaches in Homewood in the Chicago area. An enthusiastic cyclist and guitar player, Robertson is married and the father of two adult children.
Robertson’s mystery trilogy, the “Frost Chronicles,” follows Tom, an erstwhile businessman and immigrant Scotsman, as he travels to uncover mysteries he stumbles upon, from northern Michigan (Permafrost, 2012) to Boulder, Colorado (Mission, 2013), to New Orleans (Colorblind, 2106).
Currently, Robertson is at work on a new novel planned for late 2018 publication. Set in a world gently different from ours, Conclusion (working title) explores the nature of aging in society, within the context of a thriller that places two ordinary people in a race against time that culminates in a remote boundary land.
