New novel coming soon:

Living the Difference

Eastwood Minister newly-weds Sophie and Matt West, together with his daughter Tilly, have all moved on and life is different for them now. The small market town is a close-knit community – with a few dropped stitches. Steve Archibald is one of them, and his antics cause difficulties for Jess Wilson among others. The local vicar, Liz James, finds parish life brings many joys and challenges – and an unexpected surprise or two. Her best friend, Alice, delves deep in to the past and local shop assistant, Nick, understands more about his own.

Beginning on the same weekend that my previous novella, Looking to Move On ended, we encounter some familiar characters and meet new ones as each live with the differences and changes that life brings.  Another story of hope overcoming adversity. Buy here.

Living the Difference will be published by Chronos Publishing in November 2023.


 Looking to Move On

A contemporary story of loss & love. The title reflects the message of the book which is one of hope over adversity and that moving on, rebuilding life, is always possible. Not overtly religious, this is Richard’s debut novella, published by Chronos Publishing.

With a Foreword by Andrew Nunn, former Dean of Southwark, Finding Stability in Times of Change is the very first book published by a brand new, traditional publishing house, Endulini Publishing.
