Hello and welcome to my page!
My name is Ricky and I am a London born, fantasy author of novels and short novellas. I am an author and speaker, who hosts creative workshops.
Starting out as a composer since graduating with a Ba(Hons) in music and multimedia in 2007, I worked for many independent short film directors, gaining notable IMDB credits. I then decided to embrace my earlier passion of creating stories, till this very day. 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.
