The interview reveals many interesting things including…

  • How long he has been working on audio books
  • Listening to radio plays as a child
  • Challenge of creating a world, characters, where the voices might come from
  • What he thinks of Georgette Heyer and her writing, the comedy in the writing
  • What he reads, how his reading is affected by his job and the authors he prefers to read
  • Strike Back – there is the possibility for another series
  • He still hopes to create the Richard III drama, and it’s picking up interest now.

    Have you done an audio book on North and South?

    Richard has not recorded an audio version of the novel, no.

    For a long time I would not buy audio books, where is the fun in that? I love to read. I bought "Venetia" and had it for a couple of weeks before I had time listen to it.

    Richard entertained me while I put a jigsaw puzzle together. I really enjoyed listening to him read Venetia, he brought all the charaters to life and when Venetia's new sister-in-law and her mother arrived Richard made them bearable.

    I'm thinking I might get the other two books that he's done for Naxos.
