Richard Goodfellow spent two years teaching English in Japan in the early 1990s.

A software consultant and self-described road warrior, he penned the majority of COLLECTOR OF SECRETS on airplanes and in small towns throughout Oregon, Texas, Florida, and everywhere in between.

After completion of the novel's first draft, he returned to Japan for a month of further travel to lay fresh eyes on the novel's locations, almost every one of which is real.

COLLECTOR OF SECRETS is his first novel.

Hi Patrick
So great to hear that you enjoyed Collector of Secrets.
And thanks for picking up a print copy of it !
Redeemer of Secrets is fully mapped out and about 1/3 of it is written, but as you noted ... life does get in the way sometimes. My goal is to complete it in the next few years once a few other large projects are wrapped up.
Thanks again for reaching out, and happy 'reading' !
Cheers

Even if the end result is not satisfying, if you don't push through you won't have that 'aha' moment when you look again at what you've written. Basically, push-through it. (less)

Collector of Secrets by Richard Goodfellow
"Enjoyable suspense with an interesting look at Japan and their history of conquest.the tie-in with the assassination of JFK was not believable and the novel would have been better without this allegation.Still a very good effort for first novel."
Collector of Secrets by Richard Goodfellow
"This story touches all the bases and completes this episode of the hero's journey but made its secret and fantastic world seem real. Of course the author felt he had to do it once, but writing novels is not his life's only ambition."
Collector of Secrets by Richard Goodfellow
"Interesting mystery/thriller that includes a lot of history about Japan-which was quite interesting to me. It was pretty fast paced (could have been edited down a bit) and got a bit movie twist-ish/conspiracy type thing near the end, but it kept thin" Read more of this review »

Richard Goodfellow answered Goodreads's question: Richard Goodfellow
The idea had been in my head since I lived in Japan in the early 90s, it just took a lot of years to figure out the specific historical moments in which to tie it ... but once that 'aha' moment hit, it flew onto the pages.
