Growing up in London in the 1960s—an exciting time, and place, to be a teenager, my passions were books and music. I always wanted to be a writer, but was diverted into writing music rather than books, and for the next thirty years I composed music for TV. For the next thirty years I composed music for TV and radio, working at the BBC’s renowned Radiophonic Workshop, before going freelance. While at the BBC, I won two Sony Awards for ‘The Most Creative Use of Radio’. In 2007, I retired from the media music business and downshifted to Tenerife to focus on writing (initially, short stories, travel articles for magazines, a column in a local paper etc). Since then I’ve co-authored two novels with my wife and self-published one of my own. I write for love. It’s my passion, and I’m very fortunate to ‘live my dream’ (to use the jargon of reality TV). Stories, characters, ideas and words are my obsession … and my motto is: ‘Keep Scribbling!’ My debut solo novel TOO CLOSE TO THE WIND, a philosophical thriller, was published in 2019. It’s a story of survival, an epic travel adventure, and a celebration of wind, surf, and the human spirit. View all posts by Richard Attree
