Over the years, Richard has written many articles, book reviews and numerous other ways of crafting and enjoying words. In recent times, much to his surprise, he has found some of these words to be published in books. And even more surprising, was when Lockdown periods resulted in writing fiction too. He is the author of four books in total - the two on the shelf shown here and also 'Finding Stability in Times of Change' and 'A Story to Tell' (available via his website). He writes a blog at http://workrestpray.com/ and can be found on Twitter and other social media. In his paid employment career, he helped people to find or remain in work and specialised in supporting people with mental health conditions. He lives in Devon, UK and is a lay minister in the Church of England. He was appointed MBE for services to mental health in 2018.
