Episode 19: Richard Madeley

Paul Teague with Richard Madeley

Most people know Richard Madeley for his work with his wife, Judy Finnigan on TV and as part of The Richard & Judy Book Club.

He is also the best-selling author of four books.

He began his writing career with Fathers and Sons, then followed that up with Some Day I'll Find You and The Way You Look Tonight.

His new book is called The Night Book, a thriller which is set in the Lake District in the long, hot summer of 1976.

I caught up with Richard for a conversation about writing whilst he was on his promotional book tour during July 2016.

Recommended Online Event 1 [9th-11th September 2016]

The Festival of Writing is held every year.

This year it’s at the University of York, in September.

It’s not a self-publishing event, but as a self-published author, I got immense value from this event last year.

I will be attending all weekend this year. I hope to see you there!
