Hello and welcome to my page!
My name is Ricky and I am a London born, fantasy author of 13 novels and short novellas.
I am also an author and speaker who hosts creative workshops across schools nationwide! I love inspiring with my talks, whether as a guest speaker or hosting a creative workshops
My most notable novel is Gideon and the Crimson Samurai, which in July made it to the top 40 amazon rank in the whole country.
I have been found in blog features, radio shows, podcasts and even literature festivals. During book reading month, early in 2020, I led a creative workshop for the Black Cultural Archives. I also visited Whitehorse school in Croydon to talk about the self-publishing journey, before leading a fun and creative workshop for the students. Most recently, I was invited to Harris Academy to talk about my experience as a Black author and how I stay resilient and creative.
Feel free to contact me and I will be delighted to attend your event!
