Children's author Peter Bunzl grew up in South London in a rambling Victorian house. His father worked in antiques and his mother was a costume designer for film and television, so he got to see movies like Roger Rabbit being made and visited TV and film sets including James Bond and Postman Pat.

He went on to study art and then animation at the National Film & Television School before working on two BAFTA winning cartoon series (Yoko! Jakamoko! Toto! and The Secret Show). He also wrote and directed several fantastical shorts for children and his film Mind Games was a finalist for Virgin Media Shorts (2008) and was screened in over 200 UK cinemas.

Peter is now also an author following publication of his first children's books, Cogheart, which was published in 2016 by Usborne. He is currently writing full time and the sequel to Cogheart is due to be published in 2017.
