Hello! Welcome to my professional homepage. I'm an independent writer, researcher, editor and cartoonist, and the author of two books: Bumfodder - An Absorbing History of Toilet Paper and Bloody British History: Leeds.

2014 will see the publication of two more books: English History: Strange But True from the History Press, and my first novel, Wild Ink, from Dead Ink Press. 

Whenever I can, I'll be posting examples of my work here, so if you think I might be able to help you out with anything, take a look round and let me know what I can do for you: you can contact me at richardsmyth100@hotmail.com.
