I remember the moment I wanted my life to involve telling stories. I was in the back of a taxi in Mumbai, India. The sun was just rising as we hustled down the already jammed motorway, past the tarpaulin tint of slums, towering crystalline towers, and bright colors of a country I had only ever seen in pictures.
It was my first time in Asia, and I loved it. The trip opened my mind – in the way travel so often does – and that was something I wanted, no needed, to share.
In this session, I’ll talk about the inspiration for my stories, how I get those ideas down on the page, and ultimately turn them into a finished product…the book!
If you’ve got stories you want to tell (you’re a traveler, so you definitely have), join me, and let’s get writing.

LUKE RICHARDSON is a writer of thriller novels and a total travel addict. His novels follow the exploits of Leo and Allissa, a pair of missing person’s detectives. They travel the world looking for people who’ve dropped off the map. But, as you’d expect, each case is much more complex than it first seems.
Luke loves imagining the characters in his books, discovering their motivations, and sometimes (but not always) delivering them the justice they deserve. More than that, though, he loves exploring the places his books are set. The locations of his stories are as much a character as the people.
Luke is based in England but travels as often as time and (in unfortunate recent times) other forces will allow. He used to teach English in a secondary (high) school but gave that up last year to focus on my writing. He also works as a DJ in nightclubs, which he hopes to return to again before long.
