Richard lives with a small dog called Millie, on the east coast of southern Scotland. A naval officer for most of his career, he became a successful thatcher on retirement. In recent years he owned Slightly Foxed, the Berwick-upon-Tweed second-hand bookstall where he learned to love the minutiae of market trading. He was, until recently, the editor of The Inner Light Journal, an esoteric quarterly and he writes on the subject of geomancy. History is one of his loves, particularly the Roman era and he is an enthusiastic choral singer.
