Richard Hardie


Richard lives in the South of England with his wife, son and an elderly cocker spaniel.
He was a Scout Leader for 15 years and his taste for juvenile humour probably stems from those days. He also wrote and produced 5 Scout and Guide Gang Shows which is probably where his taste for writing stories comes from.
He loves writing the Temporal Detective Agency novels and will only stop when the characters get bored.
He still has his certificate for swimming a width.
