About Richard Kish
Richard Kish is Nottingham born and bred. His love of literature led to a BA in English from the University of Cambridge and his writing skills and creativity have led to communications jobs in theatre, local government and higher education.
Inspired by modern writers like Patrick Ness, Terry Pratchett, Phillip Pullman, Christopher Paolini, Garth Nix, and more historical writers like Chrétien de Troyes, Marie de France, F. Scott Fitzgerald, H.G. Wells and John Milton; Richard has always wanted to write.
He began his first novel at the age of 14 with the dream of getting it published by the time he was 25. That story would go on to become Richard’s debut novel, The Burning Ash.
Richard is currently working on his second novel with the working title A Place Where We Belong.
