Never a dull moment!

I'm currently working on three new books. The first is a dark modern day murder mystery set in a village very similar to the one I live in at the moment. The second is a co-author project, set in the time of Charles II, consisting of things that tend to come out only at night. And finally, I am working on the sequel to RIPPED, my modern day Jack the Ripper book.

What people are saying about my books

An action packed supernatural thriller that will nourish your blood lust… perfect for a plane ride or lounging on the beach

Geek Planet Online

Fast, frenetic and bloody, The Fallen is an imaginative and deftly told tale that’ll chill you to the core.

Readers who enjoy extra-broody antiheroes who are good with fists and firearms will find much […]

Publishers Weekly

One of the most amazing trilogies I have come across.

Yvonne Bastian, book reviewer

An awesome read that will have you gripping the side of the your seat as you fight demons through the fists of a scary kick ass priest.

AC Salter – author

Allegorical and erudite, this imaginative first volume establishes a world, a monolithic villain, and a catapult for Tacit and Isabella, Sandrine and Frost to confront the evil lurking in the volumes to come

Kirkus Reviews

Richardson can definitely write a rattling good tale, with page-turning suspense that never slows down. [T]he horrors of shell shock, poison gas, and international machinations that we’re learning about a century after the Great War, make Richardson’s additions to the landscape seem just one small step further in danger and darkness. And Poldek Tacit, a […]
