Richard Blunt was raised in the heart of Europe, in a nation where English is not the native language.
Mr. Blunt loves stretching his creativity through writing to entertain others. However, he publishes under a pen name to keep his personal life separate from his writing life. Like his heroes, Richard Blunt calls himself nothing more than a shadow – a specter that whispers a story for everyone to hear.
Mr. Blunt is currently busy promoting his latest book titled Lucas Trent 3: Grand Theft Magic.

If you had to describe your book in two sentences, what would they be?
When a fantasy story filled with spellcasting and alchemy meets the real world you have entered the realm of Lucas Trent. A realm that will blur the lines between good and evil and will teach you that things are never as simple as they appear to be.
Do you have a favorite line or excerpt from your current work?
Asking for that is like asking for a favorite child… But I think that would be the one… It pretty much sums up the entire character in one line: “'They call me Guardian.' He said calmly. 'And I am here to set things right that you have done wrong.'”
What are five important things that you take into consideration while writing your story?
One: Be consistent. Two: Plan ahead. (Otherwise you have no chance of being consistent to start with…) Three: Stay true to yourself. You can try to write a story the way people will like it, but it will be a compromise if you do, and that everyone will feel in the story… Four: Write it only if you feel like it and you really like what you are doing. This is the only true reason for writing a story in the first place. And five: Don’t have too high expectations.
