About Richard Abbott

Richard Abbott lives in London, England and works in IT on professional technical contract quality assurance. He also develops mobile/tablet apps with a focus on the ancient world.

His first book, 'In a Milk and Honeyed Land', explores events in the Egyptian province of Canaan at the end of the Bronze Age, around 1200BC. It follows the life, loves, and struggles of a priest in the small hill town of Kephrath. A follow-up, 'Scenes from a Life' is in progress.

The short story 'The Man in the Cistern' is set in the same location but around ten years later.

The short story 'The Lady of the Lions' is set in the same location but around one hundred and fifty years earlier.

'Triumphal Accounts in Hebrew and Egyptian' is the ebook version of his PhD thesis which, for those who want the technical details, supplies academic underpinning for some of the ideas and plot themes followed up in fiction.

See the website for more details and background information.

When not writing words or computer code, he enjoys spending time with family, walking, and wildlife, ideally combining all three pursuits in the English Lake District.
