Peter Margren is an extremely successful English writer and film director at the peak of his career and under consideration for the Nobel Prize for Literature. One day at a book signing in New York, he meets a young woman. Once he discovers who she is, his life changes forever. The story of Peter’s life and career unfolds in a series of flashbacks, which describe in intimate detail the events which shaped his life up to that moment in the bookshop. Meanwhile, the story continues in the present day and we find out not only who the young woman is, but also her history and how it is entwined with Peter’s. He embarks upon a soul-searching quest as he reviews the past and tries to make sense of an altered present and future with joy and heartbreak as his companions. ‘Daddy’ is not just an enthralling family saga, but a fascinating insight into a world where wealth comes from success but does not guarantee a happy ending.
Trevor worked in the film business. Starting at Beaconsfield Studios, as a camera assistant, then Pinewood, Shepperton Studios, MGM, Disney, Warner Brothers and on and on. At some point he found the making of TV commercials was more profitable and much less stressful that feature films so he switched and ended up with his own commercials company where he was a Director Cameraman. A combination of age and falling off a ladder provoked his retirement which led to his returning to his education. Creative writing at Ewert House College of Further Education, Summertown, Oxford. He took a course called, 'Starting the Novel' which he thought a good idea after a year of creative writing. A world war two story set in Germany, lots of tank battles and a love story holding it together which was self-published as 'and they sowed Dragon's Teeth'. The bit between his teeth he proceeded to write and write which is where we are right now.
