Pete Howard grew up in South Wales where an early love of fishing and hill-walking soon developed into a more all-embracing passion for natural history. Having studied science at 'A' level, he then decided to read for a degree in the History of Ideas at university. After working at various times as an English tutor, Press monitor, photographer and warehouse manager, he volunteered for many years service in nature conservation (with the BTCV, Wildlife Trusts and RSPB), finally becoming an RSPB Warden and Wildlife Surveyor. He worked in Cumbria, Northumberland, Lincolnshire and Norfolk. He lives in north-east Cumbria, between the Pennine fells and the Solway plain.
