Richard Blanchard’s debut novel Snow Blind was completed in 2013. It draws on his life experiences; being an avid skier; a guilty Hillsborough survivor, becoming a father late in life and losing close friends too early in theirs. His previous short story work generated critical acclaim.
Born in 1962, Richard Blanchard grew up in Liverpool. After graduating from the University of Westminster, he built a career as an executive in the retail industry. He still lives in Liverpool with his wife and two sons.
