Richard Milward was born 26th October 1984 in Middlesbrough, England.
In 2007, his debut novel Apples (Faber) was published when Richard was the tender age of twenty-two, to great critical acclaim. Richard's second novel Ten Storey Love Song (Faber) was released in 2009, receiving accolades from such folk as Irvine Welsh ('a major talent') and Lauren Laverne ('astounding'). Both novels have been adapted for the stage: Apples in 2010 by Northern Stage/Company of Angels, and Ten Storey Love Song in 2016 by Middle Child Hull. Both toured extensively and won awards at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Richard's third novel Kimberly's Capital Punishment was published in 2012, picked as a Time Out Book of the Week and heralded by The List as one of the Best Books of 2012. The novel is a sextuple-ended black comedy, following a girl's fated attempts at 'unadulterated altruism' in a nightmarish vision of our nation's Capital.
In March 2023, White Rabbit published Richard’s fourth novel, Man-Eating Typewriter, alongside reissues of his previous three books. The novel has already received accolades from the Telegraph (‘deserves to be boosted by a prize or two’), the Literary Review (‘a phenomenal achievement’) and the Guardian (‘a genuinely exhilarating entertainment’).
