I have two books available: A Guernsey Double and my latest collection, Stone Witness and am presently compiling a further collection of poems to be published next year with the title The Granite Ship.

Stone Witness was released in May 2017 by Blue Ormer Publications and is available for sale at various retail outlets in Guernsey and online at  
or direct from me via this site, Price £6.99.

One Reviewer wrote "Richard Fleming’s new collection is a tour de force, harvesting poems which include some of his strongest work to date. The best of Richard Fleming’s work is possessed by soul; that unmistakable sense that the poem you are reading is inhabited by something other than mere words."

(For review in full click HERE.)

The Man Who Landed, and its companion piece, The Boy Who Fell Upwards, by UK-based writer, Peter Kenny, form the joint publication A Guernsey Double which serves as a two-for-one package of poems relating to the island.

This, my first published collection is available from a variety of sources, including, or via this site, price £5.00 plus UK postage.

"Not since the extraordinarily poetic Book of Ebenezer Le Page has a single volume made the soul of the island so unremittingly its focus. The results are powerfully moving: a work that deals with both losing a home and finding one. Two sides of the same coin. For Guernsey people, or visitors, this book is a rich addition to their experience of the island."
