Peter Docker

Peter Docker was born in Narrogin, Western Australia, the son of a motor mechanic, and grew up on remote Lort River Station, Coomalbidgup. He studied writing at Curtin University, Perth, and acting at Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne. As well as an extensive career on stage, Peter Docker has published a number of full-length literary works and short stories, and has written for stage and radio. He lives in the Kimberley, Western Australia, and continues to write about the no-man’s-land where black and white Australia meet. He writes about our nation’s search for truth, and about the myriad ways that anyone can look into their heart – and find love.
