Welcome to Reflections of an old git. The spiritual home of Peter Perrin, author of romances with mature characters and an observer of life through old eyes.



I write sweet, seasoned romance involving larger-than-life mature characters who will make you rethink your views on older people in a positive way. My characters are mature in age but not necessarily in their behaviour. They may not be in the first flush of youth but that doesn’t stop some of them acting like hormonal teenagers.

I was born in Romford, Essex, in England. For the past twenty years, I have lived with my wife of forty years in a quiet suburb of Swindon, in the county of Wiltshire, in England. I am a father and grandfather.

I am a veteran of The Royal Air Force and have served in the UK, and in Madagascar, Singapore, and Aden—which nowadays is part of Yemen. Post RAF I worked in Saudi Arabia for a year.

After almost fifteen-years’ service in The Royal Air Force I worked in Engineering, Quality Control, and Procurement Management, not to mention myriad smaller jobs in between those careers.

Now retired my interests are Writing, Carp Fishing, and (despite being in my early seventies) PlayStation games.

My favourite quote is “Youth passes, but with luck, immaturity can last a lifetime.”
