ABOUT ME
I should start with a confession – my name is Richard and I'm a coward. Since I'm usually placed in Romance or Contemporary Women's Fiction genres, an agent suggested I use a female pseudonym to increase readership. "No way!" I declared with bold pride, "people are going to have to accept me for who I am." That evening I considered Rebecca, Rosemary, Rachel and Rita before opting for the cowardly compromise of using R J instead of Richard.

Following selection onto the New Writers programme of the Romantic Novelists' Association, two novels have been published by Accent Press – ‘A Street Café Named Desire' (short-listed for the Joan Hessayon Award) and ‘The Engagement Party'. ‘Jack & Jill went Downhill' is my first novel published by Endeavour Media.

I live in Cambridge, UK, and my writing reflects the self-deprecating humour and irony that seems to be a British characteristic.

I've worked in schools, universities and for a national educational charity and have been published in a wide range of educational journals, newspapers and magazines. Although I enjoy writing non-fiction, my true love is as an author of novels that make the reader reflect on the idiosyncrasies of everyday life.
Not surprisingly, writing is a passionate hobby as well as a profession. I love cinema, particularly film noir, and I enjoy playing tennis. I do gym, too, but hate it, to be truthful, but feel it's necessary to keep fit.
