Editors Comments on Dodger’s Lot:

Dodger’s Lot is a great, old fashioned adventure and Richard’s writing is very strong. I love the concept.

Alison Doughal. Puffin Books.

Richard’s writing is really evocative and he really does pull the reader in.

Denise Johnstone-Burt. Walker Books.

I really enjoyed reading Dodger’s Lot. Richard’s writing is lovely, very engaging and entertaining.


I think this is a strong novel written by a writer who clearly knows and loves ships and the sea, something that comes across clearly in his vivid, strong prose. He also handles action well. The descriptions of storms and fights are great.
