Richard started his career in the Royal Navy, serving on-board HMS Invincible at the age of 16 before joining Kent Fire and Rescue Service as an operational firefighter. For the next 17 years he rose through the ranks to Assistant Divisional Officer serving at various fire stations including Maidstone, Gravesend, Folkestone, Dover and Dartford.
In 2005 Richard decided that he wanted a fresh challenge and a change of direction, and so he founded the 'how2become' series of career guides which were designed to help job seekers gain employment.
The guides were so successful that Richard reached the final of the HSBC Bank Start-up Stars Awards. More recently, Richard has been a finalist at the National Independent Publishers Guild Awards in 2012, 2013 and 2014 after being recognised for his energetic publishing, brilliant ideas and highly proactive marketing. To date, Richard has sold thousands of books and become a multiple Number 1 Best-selling author.
Richard has achieved best-seller status no fewer than 117 times and his energetic publishing has enabled him to become one of the UK's most successful authors. You can visit Richard's Amazon author page, and see a small selection of his books, here.
Using his unique, 7-stage, step-by-step blueprint for publishing success, Richard has helped and guided scores of UK and International authors to achieve their publishing goals.
