Welcome to my little bio here on Amazon. I'm originally from England but have spent most of my adult life in America. I've been a DJ since I was a kid and despite numerous other projects like TV shows, movies and even teaching SCUBA in the Caribbean, music has always drawn me back. Over the years people would ask me to tell them stories that they had heard me mention on my radio shows, things like touring with Depeche Mode, DJing the wild disco scene across Europe in the 70s, bringing Wham! to the USA or writing for TV & movies and making films like "Girls Just Want To Have Fun." After retelling these stories I would be inevitably asked, "Why don't you write a book?", so "World In My Eyes" was born. I'm so pleased that so many people are loving my first novel! It's a big, action-adventure historical epic with a huge twist. I really think you will get into it! It's called SPQR, which is a Latin abbreviation meaning 'The Senate and People of Rome'. It's based on fact, but the twist is, what would have happened if a small group of elite Roman legionaries had been shipwrecked on the coast of what is now North Carolina in 55 B.C. If you enjoy a page-turner that you can't put down then SPQR is for you. Make sure you check out the little promo video for it. My second novel - BIRTHRIGHT is another big action-adventure novel that will take you across Europe and America and three centuries in a non-stop race against time. The teaser on the back cover reads: Jack the Ripper's final murder in 1888, took the life of the wrong woman and spawned a centuries-long secret search for the real intended victim and her family. Now, a direct descendant, a troubled teen, has been located in California, and authorities will stop at nothing to capture him and finally eradicate the last of Mary Kelly's bloodline. Aided by the professor who found him, and his young assistant, the three are hunted mercilessly as they flee across two continents seeking to save themselves and unravel the mystery of who is pursuing them, and why the boy's very existence threatens the global balance of power. Coming on June 1st, 2021 is my next book, IMPOSTERS, and it's based on a TRUE STORY. It details the adventures of two teenagers - one of whom I worked with years later at KROQ in Los Angeles. In 1966, one of the boys was targeted by the FBI and forced to run. He disappeared with the help of his friend, and the two of them assumed the identity of a best-selling fifties pop duo. For three years they toured the country with the Feds on their heels, as they watched America reel from assassinations, riots and protests as it endured its most turbulent decade. Early reviews for Imposters are in and EXTRA TV calls it "A front row ticket to the greatest rock'n'roll story." Terri Nunn, the lead singer of Berlin who knows about touring and bands, writes "Richard Blade steers us on a wild, thrilling musical ride - buckle up." And Kelly Urich of 94.9 KCMO declares, "Good Morning, Vietnam meets Bill & Ted - an incredible true story with film awards written all over it. I raced through each chapter wondering what would happen to these guys next." Imposters is available for pre-order right now in the Kindle store at an almost 50% discount. Order it today and have it automatically delivered to your Kindle on June 1st, and you'll be the first to be enjoying the most fun read of the summer. Feel free to reach out or message me on social media. You can find me on Facebook at Richard Blade Page and on Twitter @richardblade.
