Richard Parker worked as a professional TV writer for twenty-two years and started by submitting material to the BBC.  After contributing to a wide variety of TV shows he became a head writer, script editor then producer.  

He then decided to subject himself to the easy streets of writing and getting a novel published.
A ten year cornucopia of disappointment followed.  But STOP ME was picked up for publication in 2009.

It was shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger Award 2010 and entered the Amazon Top 10 bestseller chart.

SCARE ME, his second stand alone thriller, was acquired by Hollywood producers.  Wentworth Miller has written the screenplay.

His third stand alone, STALK ME, followed and was a huge hit in the UK and US Amazon charts. 

Richard was then published by Bookouture. Check out their titles from him - FOLLOW YOU, HIDE AND SEEK, KEEP HER SAFE, NEVER SAY GOODBYE and THE SONGBIRD GIRLS.

He is now being published by HarperCollins/One More Chapter and has four titles under the name R J Parker - THE DINNER PARTY, WHILE YOU SLEPT, THE GOOD NEIGHBOUR and THE REMOVAL MAN.  

He now lives in Salisbury.
