MICHAEL J RICHARDS
Michael J Richards specialises in horror and crime.
His comic horror novel, Afterwards Our Buildings Shape Us, is probably the weirdest tale anyone will ever read outside of H P Lovecraft. His collection of weird tales, Bodies for Sale!, has some strange – very strange, indeed –things going on in there.
Frank Peters: his life, times and crimes, his true crime biography of a career criminal, contains real-life stories of drug dealing, money laundering, burglary, attempted murders and murder.
He has written and directed a 20-minute horror film and edited Tales of the Scorpion, an anthology of unpleasant stories, and While Glancing out of a Window, an anthology of stories of crime, horror, love and drama. Michael J Richards studied at Philosophy and Literature at Warwick University and Education at Manchester before living and working in Huntingdon, Chelmsford and Northamptonshire as a journalist, teacher, warehouseman, toilets cleaner, information manager, bookkeeper, and civil servant. He spent the 1990s, on and off, travelling throughout China.
He chairs Northants Writers’ Ink (see www.northantswritersink.net
) and the Northampton Literature Group (see https://northamptonliteraturegroup.wordpress.com
), also leading its Writing Circle.
