Richard passed peacefully away on 13th April 2021, after illness. He took great pleasure from knowing that readers enjoy all his stories, and was most grateful for the overwhelming support and the best wishes that he received.
He was a lovely man, and will be greatly missed.

The North Finchley Writers’ Group
|buy from Amazon|
An Amazon Reader's Review:
"A hugely enjoyable peep into what REALLY goes on in writers' groups when they get together to plot storylines. Love, envy, laughter, hatred...and that's just the meeting! Very entertaining, and more than one home truth. Whether you’re a reader, a writer, or an aspiring author, you’ll connect with this loveable cast of characters. Who knows? You may even be inspired to open your own group. In fact, SPOILER ALERT…just don’t fall in love with the hostess! Richard Tearle is so talented in bringing these people to life, and his characters just jump off the page and into your living room. Five stars from me for a really great feel-good new book with lovely light-hearted humour and poignant stories."
When a group of north London writers meet each month for a chat, coffee, and cake – what else is on their agenda? Constructive criticism? New Ideas? An exciting project? And maybe, more than one prospective romance...?
Eavesdrop on the monthly meetings of the North Finchley Writers' Group, follow some ordinary people with a love of story writing, and an eagerness for success. Discover, along with them, the mysteries of creating characters and plot, of what inspires ideas, and how real life can, occasionally, divert the dream...
The North Finchley Writers' Group is Richard's first venture into 'writing long' and is a story based on the various publishing experiences of his writer friends – although he stresses that all the characters are very much made-up!
The Chill With A Book PREMIER award which is honoured to books that receive exceptional high evaluations from Chill Readers:
A perfect book to settle down on a sun lounger or comfy chair and escape into a world of book lovers.
It is well written with engaging characters and offers an insight into a group with all its dynamics.
No hesitation to recommend this book.
An engaging story, with recognisable characters.
A very enjoyable story, well written with very interesting characters. Also a bit of subtle romance.
