About Peter

My name is Peter McCune and I’m a writer

I’m from Bangor, in Northern Ireland, but I’ve spent my entire adult life living in Glasgow – then the North East of England – then Glasgow again. 

I’ve been writing stories for about a decade, but I’ve only properly committed to it in the last few years. I write whatever I fancy, which is often science fiction, sometimes fantasy, and sometimes literary fiction.

Working full time and writing at weekends, I was able to save up enough money to pay for a Masters course in Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow. I studied the MLitt course under the tutelage of some great writers: Elizabeth Reeder, Zoë Strachan, Carolyn Jess-Cooke, Jane Goldman, Colin Herd, and Louise Welsh.

If you’re a writer and you’d like to talk shop, please get in touch. If you’re a reader and you’re incredibly bored, then check out the short stories page. If you’d like to know where to find my work, check out my publications page.

For the admirers of my foxy logo: it was designed by Ryan McElderry. You can enjoy more of his designs on his Redbubble page.
