A Stevenage author is ‘returning home’ this Saturday for a book signing of his best-selling debut novel.
Richard Carberry - who's novel 'A Fistful of Fur' peaked in the top 10 of the UK Amazon charts last year - will be signing copies of his book in Queensway WHS Smith from 11am.
The 52-year-old, who now lives in Sheppey, moved to Stevenage when he was four and attended Roebuck Junior School - where he credits his teacher, Mr Burke, for giving him "the confidence to write".

Richard said: "Stevenage is always home to me and though it's been a few years coming, this is going to be a very special one. It will be an emotional day."
Richard says the book - which has been described as "Only Fools and Horses meets American werewolf in London" - is a "horror-comedy set in the 80s about a bunch of wideboys who end up travelling from London to a remote village in the west country with disastrous yet hilarious consequences".
The novel was released in November last year, and Richard has already completed a sequel.
There are also plans for an audiobook to be released in 2020.
