A Londoner by birth, Richard now lives in the South West of England. He has written 14 books in the spiritual/self-help genre and also produced eight CDs; five of meditation and three of mantra chanting. However, he has removed most of his prior work from circulation as he feels that it no longer represents who he is today. As well as being a writer, Richard works in palliative care for a small hospice charity. He is an artist (“throws oils at canvas”) when he gets the inspiration, and musician, and also worked as a medium for 17 years, giving public demonstrations of mediumship.
Since the so-called “shift” at the end of 2012, Richard has had what he describes as, “a series of eureka moments”, when life started to reveal its true meaning. As a result, and with the greater understanding the experiences brought to him, he viewed mediumship as, “just another run-of-the-mill mind-construct in a mind-constructed universe” and saw no point in continuing with this line of work, finally giving it up in 2018 to concentrate on his day job and writing.
Richard’s influences are, Ramana Maharshi, Neale Donald Walsch, Eckhart Tolle, Paramahansa Yogananda, Osho and Rupert Spira
