AUTHOR, EDITOR & COPYWRITER
Hello, my name is Richard and I live in Edinburgh, Scotland. I have written over 20 non fiction books on a variety of topics, from Abandoned Places to D-Day. I have also written two novels: The Hills Are Stuffed With Swedish Girls and Love On The Springs of My Time-Travelling Bed.
I edit other people's books as well as writing my own. These vary from titles about Lost Railway Walks to academic textbooks. I also have over 20 years' experience as an advertising copywriter.
If you're ever in Edinburgh, pop into Summerhall and say hello – I'm usually there writing or mainlining coffee. When I'm not writing, you'll find me out tramping the Scottish hills, searching for inspiration or at least a pub with decent whisky.
This site highlights a few of my books. I give a brief introduction to each title, and you can find out more by clicking on the cover image. First up is non fiction. You can navigate to fiction and editing using the top menu. You can find my advertising work on its own website.
BOOKS I WROTE IN SECRET
Well, not really secret - what I mean is that my name is not on the cover. Someone more famous than me (not hard) gets top billing, but I definitely wrote these books and am credited inside.
