His last photography and nature writing book Wilderland, Wildlife & Wonder from the Shropshire Borders, hardback 160pp full colour, A4 landscape, has been published to rave reviews.

‘It's a project that seems not to be about an insider looking in and hoping to grab a few award-winning images, but a person using his camera to step into the world and, with some luck, bring something back that can be cherished and preserved on the most personal level. It's a lovely book and, above all things, inspiring.'
Amateur Photographer, 5 star review

‘A lovely book with stunning photos and evocative writing'.

‘Andrew Fusek Peters takes us through the seasons of his home county in this 160 page book. Along with wide vista landscape images, you can see British wildlife in all its glory: pictures of kingfishers, lapwings, cuckoos and skylarks – plus otters, ponies, hares and bates – haven’t escaped Peters’ astute eye. A delight to read’

Their play, The Man Who Turned Into A Sofa, on the theme of depression, was a Radio 4 afternoon play. "This was so powerful, so economical, so completely honest, each of the characters laying themselves bare, without pretence or excuse, it had me hooked from start to finish and then I had to listen to it again to catch the phrases that rang so true." Kate Chisholm, the Spectator. His eco-thriller Ravenwood was published in 15 counties.
