What goes on? What isn’t going is more like it. And that’s a good thing I guess. The year started with the launch of my new stand-alone from Polis Books, ORCHARD GROVE. It’s a full-length down and dirty piece of New York noir that Booklist (Starred Review) called “A riveting story..oh, what a story it is: grisly, surprising, and page-turningly suspenseful. A terrific old-school thriller.” It’s available in hard-cover in both brick-and-mortar and digital stores all across the globe.
Also newly released is the Italian edition of MOONLIGHT SONATA from Meme Noir. I spent much of November and December touring the book in Italy with the Meme crew. We had a blast.
Next up is WHEN SHADOWS COME, a Hitchcockian style suspense thriller published by Thomas & Mercer. It’s scheduled for release on April 12 in all formats.
The newest in the Chase Baker action/adventure pulp series is now available from my own imprint, Bear Pulp. It’s called, CHASE BAKER AND THE DA VINCI DIVINITY and it’s already hit the number one spot in Occult on Amazon Kindle.
Currently I’ve just completed a new stand-alone called The Detonator and the fourth in the Jack Marconi series, THE CORRUPTIONS. Polis will be bringing the latter out in Jan. 17 in hardcover.
I’m also working on the sequel to my No. 1 Overall Amazon Kindle bestseller and Amazon “Editor’s Pick,” THE REMAINS. It’s tentatively titled, THE ASHES.
Look for a new Moonlight PI novel this year and also a short story or two. In mid-May I’ll travel to Israel and the Palestinian Territories to research the next Chase pulp novel, CHASE BAKER AND THE TRUE CROSS. I’m bringing my ballistic vest.
Otherwise, I’m living the good life. Lifting my weights, shooting my guns, getting in the crucial roadwork, tipping a few beers at the bar, and enjoying a nice red with a big fat juicy steak. Life’s good.
Thanks for having me Paul. As always, it’s an honor.

Well my short story Escape, has just been published by Caffeine Nights on Amazon, Kobo etc which is incredibly exciting! I’ve even had my first ever 5* reviews!
Escape is the prequel to my upcoming novel, With Deadly Intent, which is due out in April 2016. It’s my debut novel and I’m both excited and nervous in equal measures. It’s a crime novel set in North East England, and features Crime Scene Manager Cass Hunt, Detective Chief Inspector Alex McKay, and of course the bad guy who I can’t say too much about as wouldn’t wanna give away any spoilers. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed following their stories through and getting to know each and every one of them.
Here’s a little extract from With Deadly Intent:
Her gaze moved to the victim. A female, her face coated in a sea of red, her lifeless eyes staring out like small islands. Squinting as her eyes adjusted between artificial light and darkness, Cass guessed the woman’s age to be around mid to late twenties. A large laceration spread across the woman’s forehead, consistent with an impact on the steering wheel. Her face showed bruising to the right-hand side, and Cass furrowed her eyebrows, concentrating on the bruising.
It didn’t seem plausible that it was caused by the crash. It looked more like someone who had been beaten.
She carefully moved the torch down towards the neckline of the victim, and that’s when she saw it: a wound, heavily disguised by the amount of blood but there nonetheless. A neat but obviously deep laceration over the jugular area, which most definitely explained the additional arterial blood presence on the windscreen.
Cass pulled back quickly, retracing her steps to where the sergeant waited patiently.
‘Harry, you need to get this road closed off and outer cordons put up immediately. We need a major incident log starting and the Murder Team down here, now.’
BIO: KA Richardson lives in North East England with her patient husband, Peter, and her dog, Tala. She started writing with a view to publishing in 2011 when the first 20,000 words were used as the dissertation for her Masters degree, and she’s just kept writing from there.
She’s currently working on her fourth crime novel, again using the backdrop of the North East of England – her books are a series linked by overlapping characters though she uses different main characters in each one.
She’s appearing on a panel at Crimefest in Bristol in May 2016 with some other fantastic authors, and will be attending Newcastle Noir and Harrogate Crime Festival – no pressure there though as no panel appearances.
As well as writing, she works full-time for a large police force, and has experience in Crime Scene Investigation. She enjoys reading, people watching, and spending time with her friends and family, especially her lovely mum, Jeannet.
