Richard Parry has worked as an international consultant in one of the world’s top tech companies. His debut novel Night’s Favor and its sequel Night’s Fall have been shortlisted for the Sir Julius Vogel Award “Best Novel” category.

His first trilogy about the Night’s Champion are supernatural thrillers about an alcoholic bitten by a werewolf, who then saves the world through action scenes and clever dialogue. His standalone cyberpunk novel Upgrade is a gripping techno thriller set in a believable near-future world.

Richard lives in Wellington with the love of his life Rae. They have a dog, Rory, who chases birds. The birds, who have the power of flight, don’t seem to mind.

The new novel is something else entirely, about the boundary of the church and state (but set in a more Victorian-style not-Steampunk world, using action scenes and witty dialogue). It's a great deal of fun, but I'm aware I'm only at step one in the creative process:
1. This is awesome.
2. This is tricky.
3. This is shit.
4. I am shit.
5. This might be ok.
6. This is awesome.

So why the wrestle if I'm having fun? Night's Fall is the sequel to Night's Favour (it's planned out and I really want to write that), and there are more stories to tell following Upgrade (and when you get to the end, you'll know why - I have two more in the pipe). I want to write those stories too! It's just a matter of which comes first.

That's a long-winded way of saying I'm going to get drunk.(less)

(The devious-minded among you will probably think that I avoided answering this *until* I had a book out. That may or may not be true).(less)

Audio Test – Check One, Check Two…

Hey y’all.


I’m experimenting with audio at the moment. There’s been a few requests for various of my books in audio format. I’d love to do this, but also love to not be bankrupted by the process (audio’s expensive to make!). To that end, I’ve been thinking things like, what if I got a local narrator, or what would happen if I took some acting lessons and tried it myself?


One of the big challenges...

“I’m Grace,” said Grace, flashing that smile. “Was I,” said Kohl, “fucking talking to you?” He was slurring a little. He seemed to see the sword on the table for the first time. “Nice sword.” “Thank you,” said Grace. “I’m—” “Still not,” said Kohl, “talking to you.” He blinked, coughed, and looked at Nate. “Captain?” “Kohl raises a good question,” said Nate. “Who the fuck are you?” “Grace Gushiken,” said Grace, “your new Assessor.”
Richard Parry, Tyche's Flight

“Kohl thought about it. “I don’t know, Captain. You and me? It’ll be hard for you to give orders without your teeth.” “Not me,” said Nate. “Those two at the bar.” Kohl turned around, the faux leather booth seat creaking under his weight. He turned back. “How much you want ’em hurt?”
