Richard Burlingham Author Hello and Welcome to my website.

I was born in 1960 in Brandon Suffolk and I stayed there until the late 90’s when I decided it was time for a change and moved to Bristol. I liked Bristol so much my trilogy is based there.

The first book is written as though the characters lived in the 70’s, the second book was from the 80’s and the final book from the 90’s.

I have other titles in my head which I may follow up but I don’t think I will write any more trilogies.

I have a daughter, Sarah-Jayne, who lives in Spain and has done so since she was 4 years old, the only good thing about this is that I have to visit her once a year at least, and I have got to know the area around Quesada, Torrevieja and Benidorm quite well.

Maybe I will continue to learn the Spanish language but I’m not very good at it.

Mi español no es muy bueno

I’ve spent at least ten years in the motor trade, followed by another ten years as a publican, being the licensee of three different pubs in Luton, Basingstoke and Norwich.

In 2002 I became a driving instructor but after 12 years my nerves couldn’t take any more so in 2014 I passed my bus test, and I now enjoy driving a bendy bus to and from Luton Airport.

The books can be ordered from my 'contact' page of this website, or by visiting my Amazon page, please click on the link below.
