Tony Riches has a BA Degree in Psychology and an MBA from Cardiff University. He lives with his wife in Pembrokeshire, one of the most unspoilt areas of the UK. His first novel, 'Queen Sacrifice' was written after looking into the early history of Wales and seeing the parallels to a game of chess, with kings and queens, bishops and castles - and the people becoming pawns in their civil wars.
An interest in space exploration going back to witnessing the Apollo landings as a child led to the writing of Atlantis - The Final Space Shuttle Mission and development of the NASA Latest blog, which has only been possible through the generous support of the NASA media team.
Before becoming a writer he was Head of Cardiff Harbour Authority and supported the Captain Scott Society with exhibitions on the departure of Scott's ship the Terra Nova from Cardiff Docks in 1910. He has since researched and written Terra Nova: Antarctic Voyager with support from the Glamorgan Archives and Captain Scott's granddaughter, Dafila Scott.
When not writing Tony enjoys sea and river kayaking and has a specialist blog 'Kayak Journeys' about some of his kayaking adventures. He also enjoys hiking and plans to complete the full 186 miles of the Pembrokeshire Coast path which passes fifty-eight beautiful beaches and fourteen harbours.
Other interests include music and art. He has a blog called 'The Awakening Conscience' where he occasionally writes about Ruskin and the PRB.
