Peter Watt is an author from Australia who has successively written fourteen books. His novels are mostly historic which he personally prefers with the anticipation that the readers from Australia can learn about their history. The reason behind his passion for writing is the genes included in him just like any other talent. This compels him to write books about the former events which have had an impact on the current affairs. Apart from writing, peter has engaged in other careers such as being a member of the army, real estate agent, manual worker, an assistant to a lawyer and an adviser. Places which he has ever lived comprise Vietnam and Maclean where he is at present near River Clarence. He is also a great society minder as he spends almost half year working as a bush fire brigade for free and has ever volunteered to be a driver with one of the ambulance services. Peter is also eloquent in Pidgin and Vietnamese. His hobbies include socializing, trying different recipes, fishing, swimming and lecturing.

He is an affiliate of the Australian Society of Authors and many other institutes. One of the degrees that he possesses is the Bachelor of Arts degree which he pursued at the University of Tasmania. His involvement in bush fires helps him recognize the dreads found in life and also contribute to the writing ideas. Peter has confessed that most of his life experiences have had an impact in his writing since he has lived with many different people from diverse backgrounds and culture and has also been in numerous marriages. Peter’s publisher is the Pan Macmillan who is very supportive to his occupation. Often, he writes in a workplace that is situated at the backyard where he is able to perform his findings and other activities associated with writing. During the last half of the years, he concentrates on his job then the other half he joins his fellow bush fire brigades as a free service.

One of the most remarkable books from Peter Watt is the Cry of the Curfew which is erotic, challenging and illustrative. It mainly discusses about the historic vicious acts that took place in Australia. The book is about tales of two families which find themselves in an awful war when one of them carries out inhuman acts in the Queensland estate. The families which comprise the Macintoshes and Duffy’s engage in vengeance as they try to overcome the boundary found in the northern part of the country. What makes Peter an extra-ordinary author is the way he is able to present every word that he uses to be of significance to the story-line. The disagreement among Duffy and Macintoshes household and cruel eviction of indigenous Australians is explicitly portrayed. The extreme dislike and dishonesty bestowed renders the reader to continuously turn pages. The way the reader is able to build an association with the characters enhances captivation throughout the story.

Enid who is from the Macintoshes lineage is a successful entrepreneur whereas her spouse, Douglas comes from the Glen View estate. Their firstborn son, Angus is being compelled to reposes his dad’s sheep station. Angus has a sister, Fiona who is always guarded and is somehow inexperienced. Their other sibling, David prefers residing in England than managing their family’s company. Their cousin is a cruel man whose intention is to possess all the control he can derive from the Macintoshes identity. Patrick Duffy finds himself at the cruel hands of an abnormal officer. Patrick is a settler from Ireland and is normally involved in battling against the British setting up in the Gold arenas at the Victorian town. He has a son, Michael who is a singer and a street battler and a daughter, Kate who is also in a dilemma but she is prepared to conquer any setbacks. Kate’s brother, Tom escorts his dad and Billy to assist them in transporting carts but unfortunately his dad passes away leaving his life completely changed. From there he starts engaging in the bush fighting.

Each the author’s characters uphold some form of vulnerability which renders them to be credible and effective. The imperfection denotes an aspect of human race that the reader can be able to make out. The main inspirations derived from this tale are the craving and selfishness to obtain influence over authority. The book ends in a manner that is continuous as the characters have a certain responsibility to carry on in the next sequel. The Cry of the Curfew has a well-designed cover and has fruitfully made maximum sales.

Another early book from Peter Watt is the Shadow of the Osprey which is as story of affection, vengeance and murder. Michael Duffy is still infuriated by the conflict that is amidst his family and the Macintoshes. He has come back to Sydney for a secret undertaking. The Macintoshes are affluent in contrast with the Duffy’s who are destitute Irish manual workers. The contest for the boundary attracts a high rate of surveillance and political tactics on the land. The author has created a tough condition for the characters and given them an opportunity to mature. Enid’s spouse, Douglas and son, Angus demise has left her resentful. This affects her handling of the family’s company which ends up under the management of her nephew, Granville and Fiona’s spouse, her son-in-law. In addition to that, she finds out that not only is Granville interested in gaining full control over the business, but also he is involved in the killing of her son, David. Fiona was earlier on inexperienced but at this time she is aware of what is taking place around her.

Kate becomes independent and takes care of her siblings, nephew and niece who were left behind by her deceased brother, Tom, by conducting the cart business. On the other hand, Michael has joined the Yankee army. Other minor characters are Morrison who was earlier on a soldier and is now a leader of the Osprey. The Duffy household is also joined by a German gentleman, Max who is involved in safeguarding their kids. Michael’s son, Patrick also ends up becoming a hostage in the wrestle for the Macintoshes control. The story is set on the Sydney’s avenues all the way to the Coral marines.
