Peter Sinclair

Peter Sinclair has spent most of his working life writing. He began reporting courts and councils in rural Orange (NSW) in the late 1950s then worked briefly for The Daily Telegraph where, because of his fluent shorthand, he was banished to the Coroner?s Court.
He?d had enough of sudden death and murder when opportunity knocked and he joined the staff of a new, large weekly paper in Sydney?s northern suburbs, The North Shore Times where he was soon reporting councils again. In 1965, he climbed over the journalistic fence to work as press secretary for a succession of NSW cabinet ministers (both Liberal and Labor) until 1991. Since then, he has made guest reappearances to help out in the PR sections of government departments.
His absorbing hobby is playing the piano. He has made a number of CDs in very limited editions. The titles tell it all: Peter Murders Mozart, Wrecks Rachmaninoff and Desecrates Debussy. He says he gives them away to people he doesn?t like.
He has been married to Margaret for forty-five years and they have two sons, Sam (married to Carolyn) and Patrick. There is one delightful two-year-old grandson Harry.
