About the Author

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 from Australia's First Fleet with an obsessive interest in his country's founding history, he was consequently disappointed at generations of suppression in the education of Australians-the hidden truths of 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 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 (two books in the series), Brogan (five), his Letitia Munro trilogy (more on Australia's founding convicts), three biographies on significant people, all released by Wings-Press (www.wings-press.com). They include awards-winners and 5-Star reviews. Synopses can be read on www.kev-richardson.com. More works are in the pipeline.
These days Kev travels less, having retired from his home on Queensland's Gold Coast, 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.
