Henry the Hedgegnome

Available in paperback, Kindle and Apple iBooks.

Online and all good bookshops.

RICHARD HEDDINGTON is a Photographer based in Devon in South West England, but he has also swum with sharks, great whales and friendly dolphins. Admittedly, they weren’t very close, but he was in the sea, so they were there somewhere.

Widely travelled, each year he covers a similar distance to that of Michael Palin, usually about 584 million miles. If you need to contact him, now is a good time because in six months time he expects to be on the other side of the sun.

This year he is celebrating his 98th birthday and 40 years as a top selling author. He is neither 98 nor a top selling author (yet), but feels that if he waits until he is, he will be too old to appreciate it.

He is currently grappling with the concept of writing in the third person.
