Writer Biography - Peter Roach

Is there a typical screenwriter path? If so, I did not travel that road. I retired from working on the Grid. Yes that Electrical Grid, the one that fails in post-apocalyptic movies and in Texas.
So I write starships, galaxies, and all that stuff, but no anal probing. I also like to create spin a good fantasy yarn.

Not the ordinary Mellow Monster from Planet X sci-fi, not the take a western and transplant it on a waste moon sci-fi, but the good stuff, the $450 dollar a bottle 20 year old single malt sci-fi.
Do I have a style? I use fantasy to put ordinary people in extra-ordinary situations. They must evolve to adapt, they must grow to survive. I do not write about heroes, I write about people who have to become heroes.
