Writing, whether it's short stories or full blown novels, is not easy. Writers know this and it may explain why so many writers are afraid to let others see their work. To put your innermost thoughts down for others to read takes courage and many writers never let their work see the light of day. I think that is tragic.

They say that there are many 'best sellers' languishing in drawers all over the country that will never be published. Why? Because their writers can't bring themselves to offer their work for fear of rejection.

Well, that can be a thing of the past. With the mushrooming of facilities for on-line display perhaps, those elusive 'best sellers' can be brought to life and I help writers to achieve just that.

for a modest fee, email me for a quote, I will,

I wanted to write ever since I was at school. I made the mistake of thinking that I couldn’t earn a living and find time to write. Big mistake.

Any budding authors out there, don’t you do the same.

My first book, Overseer, came as a result of research I carried out that turned up some surprising results.
It’s classified as “fantasy” but the science behind it has been verified by far better brains than mine.

The cover of Richard's first book,

From the biblical desert of Qumran, to the covert offices of the British Secret Service. From the dark clouds of one man’s nuclear aspirations, to the sunshine of Florida and the NASA Space Centre. A story unfolds that will determine the future of the world.

Throughout the ages Overseers, appointed by the Angels, have helped the human race to advance. From primitives discovering fire, iron and bronze, to moderns advancing science and technology.

Peter Jennings is the latest Overseer.

Taken as a boy and trained for twenty earth years, Peter returns as a man to try and avoid the destruction of the world and with it, the Human Race.

Thrown together by chance, Peter teams up with Dr William Richards, a brilliant American physicist with one flaw.
He would rather be solving the ancient mysteries of the Torah than developing the world's most fearsome weapon.

Peter Jennings, an extraordinary man, armed only with the hidden powers of his mind. Powers that one day, if he can keep the secrets of mankind's destiny, may evolve to you and me.

I don’t know why, but I started to think of the town in which I grew up, Croydon, and what it was like in the early sixties. It was rapidly changing and I remembered a young police woman I came into contact with and Jill Bennett was born.
