Richard Parry has worked as an international consultant in one of the world’s top tech companies. His debut novel Night’s Favor and its sequel Night’s Fall have been shortlisted for the Sir Julius Vogel Award “Best Novel” category.
His first trilogy about the Night’s Champion are supernatural thrillers about an alcoholic bitten by a werewolf, who then saves the world through action scenes and clever dialogue. His standalone cyberpunk novel Upgrade is a gripping techno thriller set in a believable near-future world. His latest Tyche's Journey trilogy is a shoot-first, joke later space opera about a crew on an ex-war heavy lifter.
Richard lives in Wellington with the love of his life, Rae. They have a dog, Rory, who chases birds. The birds, who have the power of flight, don’t seem to mind.
