I’ve been a writer for nearly 30 years, with 70+ titles published. For most of that time, I wrote children’s and educational books under my own name, Simon Cheshire. These days, I write speculative and historical fiction under the pen name Richard Gadz. You can email me direct, or contact me via my agents cmm.agency – for news and updates follow me on Twitter @Frankenwriter. I try to reply to emails within a couple of working days but I’m often trapped in an alternate universe, where it takes longer. I’m available for book events, festivals etc – organisers should approach my agents in the first instance.
