Pete Spurrier
Born in London, Pete Spurrier arrived in Hong Kong in 1993 after a two-year trip along the Silk Road from Turkey to China. Expecting to stay in the then-colony only a month, he soon found himself beguiled by Hong Kong's cosmopolitan character and wild scenery, and has been based in the city ever since.

His part-time career as a Hong Kong movie villain ended badly, and so he spends his time writing and publishing.

Pete has written articles for the South China Morning Post, Hong Kong Business, Hong Kong Discovery, Serendib and Prestige. In books, he has written The Leisurely Hiker's Guide to Hong Kong, The Serious Hiker's Guide to Hong Kong and The Heritage Hiker's Guide to Hong Kong, all published by Formasia, as well as contributing to other publications such as the Insight Guide to South China, Hong Kong Explorer and Unsavory Elements.

At Blacksmith Books, Pete acts as publisher.
