"You usually have to wait for that which is worth waiting for."
I am CJ Richardson
I live in a small village in North Yorkshire with my husband. This is the second time around for both of us and we have six grown up children and fifteen grandchildren between us.
I started writing when I retired in 2008. Firstly joining a beginners class and then forming a writing group with some fellow students. We still meet regularly to share our work and also to critique and help each other.
I have studied A215 and A363 with the OU and gained a distinction for my year three A363 course in Creative Writing. I completed my studies with the OCA and gained a BA (hons) in creative writing in 2020.
I released my debut novel NORTH SEA SHELLS in May of 2016 and you can find a link for it on the website if you would like to know more.
I released my second book HOME TRUTHS in 2018, a collection of very short stories all linked back to a small english town.
The Rippon Spurrier was published in late summer 2021 and was a Finalist award Winner 2021 with The Historical Fiction Company.
