Meet Rex


“Hello there, thanks for taking the time to pop by.

My basic history is as a multi award winning TV and radio producer, who ended up working in marketing. I’m based in London and Buenos Aires.

Now I know this will sound daft, but once upon a time I was making a show for the BBC with Princess Diana’s medium, who told me I should be a writer. So here I am, doing what she said! 😀

My first book, Shakespeare’s Truth is a thriller, it’s an easy and fast paced read, a  page-turner with enough depth to be truly satisfying. I really hope you enjoy it, even if it does contain some shocking and controversial ideas. Grab the first few chapters for free here, Free sample of Shakespeare’s Truth by Rex Richards

I’ve had people trying to stop me publishing it, but take it for what it is—a quick fun read full of action, intrigue, and things to make you think!”

Shakespeare’s Truth involves a secret birth in the English Royal Family hidden for hundreds of years, a shocking Royal death and kidnap in the modern day, a secret society, rivalry between the police and army, a race against time to find a missing treasure, and a love story.

At its heart is a huge literary scandal related to William Shakespeare. Shakespeare’s Truth includes ciphers and codes hidden in monuments around the UK, which reveal that Shakespeare is not who we think he was… and that this is linked to the Royal Family in an unexpected way! My dad spent years researching the secrets revealed in this book. But he died from a terrible illness without finishing it. I took the essential truth of his research, added some of my own ideas and turned it into a fast paced thriller. Some of it was very emotionally demanding to write. But being able to continue his story is really important to me and everyone else in our family.

Some truly shocking things do happen in the book, which extreme as they seem, are not that far away from what could actually happen in modern England.

The next book, coming out in October, is called Breaking News. It’s been compared to Trainspotting, Fight Club, American Psycho and Bonfire of the Vanities. So it’s pretty full on!”
