Old Peterite secures fantasy trilogy book deal!

Richard Swan

We are delighted to share that Old Peterite Richard Swan (The Manor 2002-2007) has secured a six-figure deal for his trilogy the Empire of the Wolf Series scheduled for launch in spring 2022.

Richard, currently a city lawyer by day, has always enjoyed creative writing and was pleased to be able to share his exciting news with his former English teacher Jo Lawrence. Richard is thrilled with the messages and support he has received from family and friends, and the interest in his trilogy from other countries is growing by the day.

Taken from the website of his agent, DHH Literacy Agency, we have an insight into Richard’s work: “The Empire of the Wolf trilogy centres around Sir Konrad Vonvalt, who the synopsis describes as "an 'Emperor's Justice' ... a detective, judge and executioner rolled into one. Vonvalt travels the Empire investigating crimes and dispensing justice, but when he investigates the murder of a noblewoman, Vonvalt uncovers a plot that threatens to bring down the entire empire."

We look forward to sharing more from Richard in the lead up to the launch of his first book, and wish him best of luck for all the work and preparation in the coming months.
