About Richard Kish

Richard Kish is a Nottingham-based writer and self-described mega geek, born in 1994. His love of literature led to a BA in English from the University of Cambridge and a career in marketing and communications across the arts, local government, and higher education.

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.

When he’s not writing, he can usually be found playing video games, watching films, reading, going to the theatre, or out walking his dog, Milo.

Richard is currently working on his second novel with the working title A Place Where We Belong.
