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 nominated 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, has been acquired by Hollywood production house Relativity Media.  Wentworth Miller has now completed his screenplay.

His third stand alone, STALK ME, has just been published. 

Richard is currently working on a sequel to SCARE ME.

He moved from London to Salisbury in 2006 but can always be lured back with the promise of an obscenely long lunch.
