PJ McDermott was born in his grandparents' house in the town of Barrhead just outside Glasgow but spent most of his growing up in Ferguslie Park, a notorious suburb of Paisley, where he developed a healthy appreciation for self-preservation. In his teens and early twenties, PJ sang and played in several bands on the local folk circuit and pub scene. By twenty-one, a girlfriend convinced him to go to Glasgow University where he had a ball, and graduated Bachelor of Science. When he graduated, he fell in love with an Aussie girl who convinced him to return to Melbourne with her. Married to Susan, they now have two children (Fiona and Gillian) and three grandchildren (Mia, who is especially cheeky,) Ryder Patrick, and Ethan (who is too young to be cheeky yet - but is very cute.) PJ discovered a love for writing and published his first book in 2014 - a coming of age novel titled "Small Fish Big Fish." PJ is also the author of the science fiction series, Prosperine, comprising The Alien Corps, Rise of the Erlachi and The Scarf.
