The 'Dodgy Reg' podcast!
The 'Dodgy Reg' stories are a project I've been working on for a number of years. Short stories about my fictional encounters with a character who is a consummate conspiracy theorist. Each is written to stand alone, but they are an unfolding sequence in which character development takes place on both sides of the dialogue. Some of them have been broadcast on local radio, but for some while I was unsure how to present them as a whole until a friend suggested I ought to do a podcast. They seemed like the perfect material to use. So the first podcast appeared on Acast (& other platforms including Spotify & You Tube) on 30-5-23 & since then all 14 episodes have appeared on a weekly basis. So now you can binge-listen to them all, either on the aforementioned sites or here, with the merest press of the grey button just to the right...
Go to 'News' page link above for 2023 updates, including news of events in which I am or have been involved - including a new show I prepared for the Shaftesbury Fringe this July, my experiences at a Shaftesbury event called 'Fiction for Fun', and more to come. Check out embedded music MP3s you can listen to on the 'music' page, and two videos and some poem MP3s on the 'Wilful Misunderstandings' page. A fresh story ('A Shedload of Angels') temporarily disappeared from the website after my 'migration' to the Wix platform, but can now be found once more on page 2 of my 'fiction' section. More soon.
Any one who chances upon this site who is into comics may remember me as 'Dick Foreman', scripter of 'Black Orchid' for DC comics, along with occasional issues of 'Swamp Thing'. But now I go by 'Richard'. If you're interested, click on the link below to go to the first of a series of entries on my blog that tell the history of my career as a comics writer.
Welcome to the website of Richard Foreman, writer of 'Wilful Misunderstandings'. This site exists to promote the book and give a taste of some of the other creative works I've turned my hand to over the years.
If you'd like more information and an opportunity to buy the book click on the first button to the right of this box. It will take you to a page with links to the publisher's website where signed copies can be ordered, and to my blog which commenced with a series of pieces about how the book was conceived and written. Scroll down and you will find quotes from reviewers, other writers and readers of the book; links to videos of live readings of the stories; and finally transcripts of reviews that have so far appeared in print or online.
The 'news' link button will take you to updates on my activities - public appearances and ongoing projects. The rest are pretty much self explanatory.
