Richard Martin


Writer and editor. Author of Mean Streets and Raging Bulls: The Legacy of Film Noir in Contemporary American Cinema. Co-author of The Neo-Generalist: Where You Go is Who You Are. Ghostwriter of Return of the Vikings: Nordic Leadership in Times of Extreme Change.

My writing services embrace books, articles, white papers and blog posts. Topics covered include neo-generalism, cultural studies, business, literary criticism, film history and sport. These reflect personal research interests, as well as practical experience gained working in a range of industries in the public, private and non-profit sectors. Among them, education, publishing, consultancy, health and transport.

I offer bespoke editorial and advisory services, assisting authors with their writing projects. This entails working closely with them on the life cycle of their books and articles, from initial idea through to completed manuscript. I provide guidance on structure, style, voice, grammar and content, and serve as sounding board and critical friend.
