About Pete Carter
Pete grew up in the Western Australian Wheatbelt town of Tammin – in his words, “a place so small even if you don’t blink you’ll miss it.” He eventually left the huge wheat silos behind for big city life, going on to study at Aquinas College in Perth, and eventually the University of WA.
A self-described journeyman, Pete’s working life has been nothing less than diverse, having found employment as (deep breath!) a bistro food server, fast-food caravan cook, florist delivery driver, football gate attendant, taxi driver, wheat-bin grain sampler and weighbridge operator and even a stint as a Santa Claus! He’s also worked for the Western Australian and Australian Public Services, the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra and King Fahad National Guard Hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Currently, Pete combines two of his greatest passions, creative writing and mathematics, to keep the wolves from the door.
