DDedicated Twitter followers will know that a few days ago we let slip that we’ve gone and signed up another author to the Burning Chair family. Step forward, Richard Ayre, who has written an insanely readable historical novel, which we’re seriously excited about publishing this year.
More on that to come very soon, but for now here’s some background on Richard himself to whet your appetites:
Richard was born in Northumberland, too many years ago now to remember. He has had a variety of jobs including roofer, milkman and factory worker. Tiring of this, Richard studied for a degree with the Open University and now teaches History for a living.
At an impressionable age he fell in love with new wave Heavy Metal and rock music and at about the same time read his first James Herbert novel. The combination of these two magnificent things led him to write his first novel, Minstrel’s Bargain, a tale of music and horror. He now lives in Newcastle upon Tyne where he continues to write whenever he can. When not writing, or putting children on detention, he can be found pottering around the Northumberland landscape on his motorcycle, Tanya.
