Author Biography:

Richard Williams was raised on a farm in north Pembrokeshire and lived for a number of years in Sydney, Australia in his early twenties. Later, following a degree and masters degree in Development Studies from Exeter University and LSE respectively, Richard worked as a technical writer at the newly-created Global Fund to fight HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria, in Geneva, Switzerland. In subsequent years, Richard moved into the restaurant industry, co-founding Switzerland's Holy Cow! Gourmet Burger Company and Cardiff's The Grazing Shed. His ongoing food industry work has been balanced more recently with creative writing courses with Anjali Joseph and Monique Roffey (UEA) and his current mentor, Daren King. Richard's debut novel, Mostyn Thomas and the Big Rave, was published by Graffeg in 2018. The Sheriff of Geneva is Richard's second novel.

Further Information:

Through a series of events, the gold ends up not in Bonjour's hands, but in the grease separator of the newly opened Gourmet Burger Factory restaurant in downtown Geneva. The staff, a motley crew of young strays and disparate characters have a choice – keep the bullion safe for Bonjour's imminent arrival, or take the loot and run, knowing the elusive villain may already be amongst them.
