Product Information

Meet Kev Richardson

Following a career in business management at international level, Kev attained a degree in journalism to spend ten years travelling the world writing articles for airline and travel magazines—so he’s had many adventures to pepper his adventure tales.

A sixth-generation descendant from Australia’s First Fleet with an obsessive interest in his country’s founding, he discovered how the true history had, over several generations, been suppressed—the people were never to know! Years of fact-finding revealed all, and Kev writes fictions around the true history. His qualifications are extensive; he is a Past President of The First Fleet Fellowship and a Past Secretary of The Descendants of Convicts Inc. For his work during Australia’s 1988 Bicentenary he was created Honorary Life Member of The Regiment of Redcoat Descendants. He has delivered papers on the subject in Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain and in his retired abode, Thailand.

He writes, apart from his country’s convict history, adventure fiction with an Australian flavour, as well as biographies on significant people—including an exciting part of his own life. He recognises the increasing trend for digital reading so all works are published both as traditional paperbacks and the economical eBook.
