His book The Mud House – the story of building a mud-brick house in the middle of nowhere with no power tools – was published in a new revised edition in 2016. Many of these titles are also available as e-books.
Richard has written a few stage shows, including Lonestar, a play about country music which toured nationally with Genevieve Lemon, and A Christmas Story, which was performed at the Sydney Opera House, with Richard Wherrett directing. He was also one of the co-authors of Breast Wishes.
