Peter Ruehl

Peter Ruehl was born in New York City in 1947. He first came to Australia to cover the America's cup in Fremantle in 1987, but quickly discovered a broader role writing humorous columns about Australian life, his sense of the absurd compounded by having an Australian wife and three children. Along the way, he transformed himself into one of Australia's most beloved writers, always working from his home near the beach to create a world rich in imagery and laughter.
