Manufacturer Description

This tale of love and hate in the name of God exposes many travails in 17th century England.
Hadn’t the English had enough of invaders, the Vikings, Normans, Picts and Scots without their world now erupting in religious mayhem? Can Richard’s family avoid division? Were their decisions wise? Did either side win?
Religion is shattered as families opt to support this or that faith or faction. Peace and order are themselves ripped into frenzied shreds as faith in God is torn asunder.


What They Are Saying About Faith and Frenzy

In Faith and Frenzy, Kev Richardson, proven storyteller, transports you into the middle ages, into hearts and minds of bewildered innocents as their world erupts. Hadn’t Englanders had enough of invaders, the Vikings, Normans, Picts and Scots without their world now erupting in religious mayhem and civil war?

Richardson paints anguish, ordeal and dolour as families opt for different sides. Can either win?

Another fine work from this writer’s canny sense of perception.

Aussie e-Book Reviews

 5+ Stars!

Multi-published historical writer, Kev Richardson’s slant on 17th Century history comes across as very personally realistic, as factions of the ruling classes fight to maintain a hold on religious beliefs. In Faith And Frenzy he introduces Richard Bray, wife, Beatrix and their extensive family who live through and survive England’s bloody Civil War.

If you like to live the history you’re reading, this book is extremely well presented. I highly recommend it.

Meet Kev Richardson

Following a career in business management at international level, Kev attained a degree in journalism to then sweat as far up the River Nile as one can get, canoe down the Amazon, flash countless rolls of film from atop the Eiffel Tower, the heights above Yosemite, the Victoria Falls et al, scream “Ole” at a Chihuahua bullfight, ride elephant trails in Thai jungles, wallow in the incredible history of Rapa Nui’s Maoi, and as convention almost demands, was mugged in Bogota. His articles on travel to exotic lands have featured in travel and airline magazines around the world.

Meanwhile, being a sixth generation descendant of Australia’s First Fleeters with an obsessive interest in Australia’s founding history, he was concerned over the generations of suppression in the education of Australians, on clouding the truth in what really happened. Years of fact-finding with the help of other dedicated researchers revealed all and Kev vowed to set the history books aright by bringing the brutal truths of convictism to light. He is well qualified to do so for as a student of First Fleet history he has presented his subject on many occasions in press, radio and television interviews. He is a Past President of ‘The First Fleet Fellowship’ and a Past Secretary of ‘The Descendants of Convicts Inc.’. During Australia’s 1988 Bicentenary he officiated in Founding celebrations in Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart and Norfolk Island and for his work during that Bicentenary, was created Honorary Life Member of The Regiment of Redcoat Descendants’.

Kev now devotes his life to writing on not only his country’s convict history, but general fiction with an Australian flavour. He recognises the growing trend towards digital reading so follows the world’s top authors in publishing his works both as traditional paperbacks and eBooks.

His Gurrewa and Brogan series released by Wings ePress are followed by Letitia Munro in October 2008, To Plough Van Diemen’s Land in June 2009 and The Terrible Truths in December 2009, the last three being more works on his country’s convict beginnings. Short synopses of all can be read on And more works are in the pipeline.

These days Kev travels less, having retired from his Gold Coast home, left his grown family and friends to write from experiences and adventures during his exciting travels, happily ensconced in the foothills of the Golden Triangle in amazing Thailand’s exotic north.
