Richard Cobourne writes with a production background in the broadcast, corporate, music and global events, and communications industries. He has worked in the business-of-show all over the world for many years – and as a result has a deep understanding of the shenanigans of the industry that underpin the authenticity of his novels.
He began his career working for the BBC, initially in the sound department of radio, TV, and outside broadcasts. After fifteen years he left to co-found On Screen Productions Ltd, which he sold in 2015 to pursue a career as a freelance consultant creative producer, occasional voice artist, and to enable him to write full-time. He is a member of The Ivy Club, BAFTA and the National Liberal Club.
He has published two novels in the showbiz thriller trilogy: 'Bandwagon' and 'Red Light and Bell'; the third, 'End Turn' is in progress. His non-fiction titles include, 'The Cardio-Protective Effect of Wine', 'The History of Diabetes', and 'The History of Castration'.
Richard Cobourne lives with his wife on the Welsh side of the delightful Wye Valley and in the warmth of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands.
