I was born in London, England, and now live in Somerset. I am married, and we have one son. In my non-novelist life, I am an award-winning TV documentary producer, script editor and screenwriter. For more about me and my work, visit my website at www.richardburkeward.co.uk.
My three psychological crime thrillers are FROZEN, SEPARATE ROOMS, and REDEMPTION. They are stand-alone stories, that explore what happens when ordinary people are thrown into an extraordinary, and secret, world:
* Your best friend tries to kill herself - and your search for answers takes you back to mysterious events in your childhood.
* Your brother dies in a car accident - but it wasn't an accident, and your search for his killers plunges yoiu into a world where crime is just another word for love.
* Your wife is abducted - and the only way you can find her is to betray every principle you ever held.
My books are emotionally complex and (if my reviews are to be believed) very satisfying. They touch on themes of betrayal, nostalgia, loss of innocence, emotional paralysis, and redemption.
I also have two science thrillers in the pipeline (though I do have an awful lot of things in the pipeline, so they could take some time to emerge).
