John Ronald Peel was born in Nottingham, England, in 1954. He
attended Carlton le Willows Grammar School, in Gedling, Nottingham,
England. At the young age of 10 he started writing stories.
"It's all I ever wanted to do," he
John Peel had anemia when he very young, which meant he would
get tired very quickly. As a result he wasn't allowed to play sports
and had to stay in class and read instead.
John Peel moved
to New York in 1981 to marry his pen-pal, Nan. His wife
is a library director. Peel and his wife rescue
miniature pinschers, and find good homes for them. Sometimes that "good
home" ends up as their home.
He currently lives in Long Island, New York, with his wife and
their eleven pets (ten dogs and one cat).
