Hi, I’m Richard Attree …

For the past two years I’ve been working on my novel: TOO CLOSE TO THE WIND – a journey of self discovery narrated by a young Australian windsurfer and the world’s first windsurfing novel (allegedly). It’s finally finished (phew!) with publication planned for March 2019.

Click on the links to read the BLURB and a look-behind-the-scenes AUTHOR’S COMMENTARY (which also has a sneak preview of some future projects).

The ABOUT ME page is a more revealing and entertaining version of the biog you’ll find in my books. It’s the story of my career as a musician, my return to my first love: writing, my obsession with wind, waves, adventure … and how the haircuts have reflected the zeitgeist of the decades I’ve lived through (complete with some occasionally embarrassing pics).

I’ve just released a FREE PREQUEL STORY, to wet your appetite for the novel. You’ll meet my surfaholic narrator, Nick, discover his eventful back-story and his obsession with the ocean, wind, and surf. ’TOO CLOSE TO THE WIND – THE PREQUEL STORY’ takes Nick from his earliest memory to the day the novel begins—the day he should have drowned.

If you download the Prequel Story you’ll be subscribed to my newsletter and be the first to hear when the novel is available. You’ll then receive an occasional newsletter with news about my books, special offers, and wildly entertaining content … again, allegedly 🙂
