Richard Mann grew up being an avid reader of books, even from an early age he loved the literary giants Tolkien, Michael Moorcock, Frank Herbert, and Douglas Adams. He is also a big fan of Bernard Cornwell, the historical novelist, and Frederic Forsyth, the great thriller writer. Richard’s books are an eclectic mix of all of these. He started writing at 16 but the dream faded until a few years ago when he started writing again
In his twenties, he pursued studies in business and accountancy. During this time Richard also studied Shaolin and Wing Chun Kung Fu and even started a school with a friend. His professional journey took him through roles as an accountant and a software developer in the City of London, for banks, and insurance companies. Today, he has transitioned into literature, to follow his passion of being an author.
