Book writing by Richard

Everyone has a book in them, so they say… It often pays to have someone with expertise in book writing do it for you. Richard has written three books for clients and has helped others write their’s through proofing and other editorial work. Contact me today to discuss your needs, and perhaps discuss what it will take to turn your dreams into a solid, 40,000 word reality. You’d be surprised how many big sellers are actually ghost written, if only because book writing is such a niche discipline.

2017 – Beginner’s Guide to Sailing

In the winter of 2017 I worked with Kavas Yachting to develop a simple online guide to sailing a yacht. Starting with the basics (parts of a boat) we built up to complex issues such as stopping the boat from sinking after a collision and First Aid.

2015 – How to Learn to Sail

This is the latest of my books. For The Boating Hub, I wrote a book on sailing qualifications and sailing courses that are available in your home country. Until I was asked to do it, there was no such reference available anywhere in the world and it could take a long time to figure out what qualifications you can get to learn to sail in Singapore, Japan or even parts of Europe and the US!

men's health forum 2013 – Beat Stress, Feel Better

I co-wrote this book published by the Men’s Health Foundation, that is designed to show men that there are ways of making yourself feel better when it is all going horribly wrong. With suicide one of the biggest killers in men between the age of 20-40, this book is designed to reach out to the thousands of men who might otherwise take extreme action to resolve their problems.

2007 – Giving Voice to the Inner Scream

Newly qualified with my Master’s Degree in broadcast journalism from University College Falmouth, I was unaware of the power of the stigma associated with mental illness, until I told a major international news organisation who were in the process of recruiting me for an internship. Cutting a long story short, due to poor legal representation I lost the discrimination case against them and got a bee in my bonnet – why is the stigma of mental illness more disabling to some people than the illness itself?

I lashed out in the best possible way, publishing a book on the subject. It is now out of print but you can download the PDF from this website here: Giving voice to the inner scream
