Robert James Peacock
Shipley, West Yorkshire
I am a Yorkshire-born, Edinburgh-based freelance writer, promoter and marketing consultant.
For fifteen years my working life has alternated between the arts and horse racing industries, with a brief sojourn as a minor cog in the Whitehall political machine in the UK.
Recent work includes projects for the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care, Bradford One and Racing Research. I am also editor of Scotland's online arts and culture magazine, TV Bomb, have written for Timeform and spent five years managing and writing for digyorkshire.com, the leading Yorkshire arts guide.
When not freelancing, I gamble on horse racing, using knowledge gained from three years in the tutelage of leading UK form expert, John Whitley. My other love is music. I listen to it, write about it, see it live and occasionally play it myself. I also have a lingering love of language, left over from my Linguistics degree at the University of Edinburgh.
