Richard Byrne in his own words:

"Born in a hospital. Brought up in Brighton. Learnt to colour-in in Eastbourne. Worked in graphic design. Worked in Brighton, London, Manchester and Yorkshire Hills. Worked for myself.

"Met Philippa somewhere along the way. Had two children. Had the mid-life crisis. Bought my first guitar. Got the urge to create a children's book. Got an agent. Got a book deal. Got another book deal."

Richard now lives in Chichester so that he can be closer to family, old friends, the coast, and the equator.
