Peter McLean was born near London in 1972, the son of a bank manager and an English teacher. He went to school in the shadow of Norwich Cathedral where he spent most of his time making up stories.

He has since grown up a bit, if not a lot, and spent 25 years working in corporate IT. He is married to Diane and is still making up stories.

He is the author of the Burned Man series of urban fantasy novels (Drake, Dominion & Damnation) published by Angry Robot Books, and the forthcoming fantasy Priest of Bones from Ace/Roc
