Richard A Harris, that’s me, can be a bit of a dreamer. On the one hand I am a busy Vascular Surgeon to real people. On the other a daydreamer and writer who fell in love with words quite a while ago. I live in Sydney Australia, one of the most beautiful places on the planet and I’m deeply appreciative of my surrounds, my family and friends.


I set about writing Imagine and a second book on the Thursday and Friday of what had previously been a somewhat disorganised and frustrating week in the life of a surgeon. Loving this profession but yearning to set some dreams, some adventures and some love down on paper.


So Thursday became Imagine and Friday became the second novel that will also be born shortly.


It has been a hard year, this year, for many. I lost my wonderful partner and Mum of my 2 gorgeous kids in early 2020 to cancer. So grief has been part of the birth of these words but they are written really just for love, hope and fun. I sincerely hope you will enjoy my words.


Inspired by one of the greatest works of art ever, John Lennon's revolutionary song Imagine, this novel takes you on a journey across the world with the harmonies of the music in mind. Imagery and dreams are intricately woven in a number of love stories that intertwine and roll back on each other like the chorus and verses of a song. A perfect read for a beach holiday or in front of a warm fire, Imagine's deeper meanings are inlaid with dreams of the future. Richard's hope is that the books purity of message, which is all about love, will enchant and inspire, leaving the reader with a rekindled appreciation for life. There is of course a villain or two; a bit of drama here or there as it is not a perfect world, but as you dance from one page to another, the words will take you along a journey full of evolution, revolution, peace and generosity.
