Freddie Peters was born in France but stayed in the Square Mile (City of London) for over 25 years. She started as a lawyer and then became an investment banker. Freddie loves art (visual, music, cinema, theatre, etc.) and supports various charities. She writes not only to tell a story but also because she associates with George Orwell’s quote.

“When I sit down to write a book, I don’t say to myself I am going to produce a work of art. I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some facts to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.”
