‘Even if you are the sole source of a story, and you keep it under your hat, it escapes somehow, it leaks out from beneath the brim.’ So I wrote in my first book, Breakfast in Brighton. Telling stories - and sometimes making them happen - is what I have done in a variety of forms since my first published newspaper feature 20 years ago.
I have written five books, including the bestselling travelogue Breakfast in Brighton and the critically acclaimed novel for teenagers, The Wrong Hands. I have also looked in the eyes of both shamans and jaguars - for 13 years I was the deputy travel editor of The Daily Telegraph and I continue to travel across the world in order to write articles for that newspaper and for other leading British publications. In between, my drama writing for BBC Radio 4 has been brought to life by such actors as Stephen Tompkinson and the Oscar-winning Imelda Staunton.
Nigel Richardson  
I was born near Wolverhampton (hence my lifelong support for Wolverhampton Wanderers) and spent formative years in South Yorkshire and West Sussex. I live in a flat next to the River Thames in south-west London with my partner and our dog. We also have a 'Romantic poet’ sort of cottage in the Hampshire countryside where I do most of my writing.
