Welcome to my website! 

You can read the first chapters of my novels, as well as some recent short stories and articles I've written. I've also got lots of good photographs and more biographical information about me than you could probably ever want!

A wonderful profile of me has just come out in an excellent Jewish magazine.  I discuss my lfie in Portugal, the books themselves and kabbalah. You can find it here: http://www.momentmag.com/richard-zimler-last-kabbalist-lisbon/  I would be very grateful if you would share this link with your friends and family (the best way to sell books is by word of mouth!).  

Here is a four-minute interview with me about the city where I live - Porto - and the nearby Douro Valley. The images are absolutely spectacular (and should make you want to visit!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDMfhIUrRcE

I have an article called WRITING HOME in the brand new issue of Stanford Magazine.  It is about non-traditional definitions of home and the evolution of my own feelings about where I live. https://alumni.stanford.edu/get/page/magazine/article/?article_id=79979

THE NIGHT WATCHMAN was published in the UK, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand in July of 2014.   One of the best reviews I have ever recieved has come out in Australia, from the national radio system (ABC).  Please share it with friends.  http://blogs.abc.net.au/queensland/2014/09/weekend-bookworm-the-night-watchman.html?site=brisbane&program=612_morning

Another great review has come out in the Irish Examiner: http://www.irishexaminer.com/lifestyle/artsfilmtv/books/book-review-the-night-watchman-279843.html

Here is the podcast of my launch of THE NIGHT WATCHMAN in Oxford! The wonderful Nicholas Shakespeare talks about my new novel THE NIGHT WATCHMAN and interviews me.  http://www.hansiriedesel.com/richard-zimler.html   

THE NIGHT WATCHMAN has been a big besteller in Portugal this fall and winter.  It was chosen as one of the Books of the Year in Portugal's best daily newspaper, as well.  And I LOVE the British cover.  You can see the cover here and also order the book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Night-Watchman-Richard-Zimler/dp/1472113519/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1391625662&sr=8-1&keywords=The+Night+Watchman   

Here is an article I've just published about the themes of the book: http://shinynewbooks.co.uk/bookbuzz01/the-night-watchman-and-the-dilemma-of-living-in-portugal/

It would be lovely for the novel to get off to a good start, so please tell your friends about the book's release.  Thanks.  

I have a new essay up at a great website called Talking Writing.  The essay is about the evolution of my feelings toward Judaism.  It's called From Mount Olympus to Mount Sinai.  Hope you like it.  It's here: http://talkingwriting.com/mount-olympus-mount-sinai?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+talkingwriting%2FafGZ+%28Talking+Writing%3A+The+Magazine%29

There's a great blog about my novel THE SEVENTH GATE at this site: http://www.firdevstalkturkey.com/turkey-in-the-world/richard-zimler-master-of-historical-mystery/  

If you want to see what my home city of Porto looks like, here I am in Porto talking about my new novel, The Night Watchman, which comes out in the UK in June.  Great views of the city! http://www.tvi24.iol.pt/videos/video/14076082/1s

My article about my book tour in Poland to promote The Warsaw Anagrams is up at a great American website about writers and writing, Talking Writing: http://talkingwriting.com/a-tale-of-two-polands/   The article is getting interesting comments. If you read the piece, please consider writing something about it. 

I've just written a new song for a project I'm doing with a musical duo from Porto, Moon(in)Motion.  The song is about my brother who died in 1989 and is called "I Remember it was May": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrgKEFV569g&feature=plcp

I've also posted another song of mine that Moon(in)Motion will be recording, Our Love for the Life We Survive.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOgaH_yA8k8  The lyrics are there, too.  Hope you like it.!
