Pete Oxley is a writer and public speaking coach who lives in the English Home Counties. He enjoys reading and writing in a wide range of areas but his main passions are sci-fi, fantasy, historical fiction and Steampunk.

He is the author of the historical fantasy novel The Infernal Aether (rated 4.5 stars on Amazon, described as “An entertaining and inventive steampunk dark fantasy”) and the follow-up novella A Christmas Aether. He is currently hard at work on the second and third full-length novels in the series: The Demon Inside will be released in February/March 2017, and Beyond The Aether will be released in early summer 2017.

Pete's influences include HG Wells, Charles Dickens, Neil Gaiman, KW Jeter, Scott Lynch, Clive Barker and Joss Whedon.

When not desperately writing fiction stories, Pete coaches nervous / inexperienced public speakers, blogging at and is the author of The Wedding Speech Manual: The Complete Guide to Preparing, Writing and Performing Your Wedding Speech.

He lives with his wife, two young sons and a slowly growing guitar collection. Aside from writing and willingly speaking in front of large crowds of strangers, Pete spends his spare time playing music badly, supporting football teams that play badly, and writing about himself in the third person.
