Peter trained as a metallurgist and graduated with a master’s degree from Cambridge University in 1979. He chose to teach mathematics at Aston Comprehensive school. Since 1979, Peter has taught a number of schools, including Cheam, before becoming a full time author. He spends a lot of his time touring round schools, both in the UK and abroad, giving presentations about his books and inspiring kids to read.
His cover illustrations are now done by Paul Davies, the illustrator who created some of Stephen King's covers, including It'. The internal illustrations are done by his son, the author and illustrator Simon Murray. To date the Mokee Joe series has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide.
Peter J. Murray has claimed that he got the name "Mokee Joe" from when he was playing hide and seek with his kids and when he was looking for them, he shouted "Mokee Joe is coming". In years’ time, he was reminded of Mokee Joe, so he decided to become a full time author.
