Richard Cruttwell

Born in Bexley, Kent, just before Christmas 1961, Richard found the newly emerging punk rock scene, in 1976/77, to be the perfect outlet for teenage angst. Education at an all-boys secondary modern school in Dartford ultimately led to him attaining a modest five O levels. After playing guitar in several bands, he shelved his personal dreams of attaining rock and roll stardom and put his life on hold to provide for, and raise, a family.

In the latter years, Richard turned his creative focus to photography and writing, having been inspired by his visits to Eastern European countries. Following a 32-year absence from live musical performances, Richard made a comeback as a guitarist with the East End Badoes in 2016 and has since played and recorded with Medway rock band, The Burntwick Smugglers, formed by four friends during the coronavirus lockdown.

Now living with his wife and muse, Liane, in Preston, Lancashire, he continues to write and play the music he loves. Following the cult status of his first novel, Room 13: Between Hell and Redemption, published in 2017, this is his second novel and the sequel which has been six years in the making.
