Writer profile profile for richard
I retired to the Cotswolds ten years ago after selling the retail business in North Wales which I had built up over forty long years. Fortunately for my sanity most of my time was spent creating advertising copy and promotions, which dramatically increased the business and taught me the power of words. Being a member of the Chippy Writers’ Group encouraged me to attempt a lifelong ambition to write a novel. Recently published, In the Shadow of Hitler is a romance set in the ruins of bombed-out Hamburg in 1946.
My interests also involve me in running a play reading group, a lunch club, and a monthly cinema. My grown up children live in London and Bristol, and my long-suffering partner Barbara and I alternate between our two homes in Moreton-in-Marsh and Chester.
