Sean Bean has agreed to do it to help raise funds for his two selected charities- which Richard has kindly supported. Looks like they are two good Sheffield blokes with their hearts in the right place.

The two charities that Sean is supporting are:

Sohana Research Fund:

The Sheffield's Children's Hospital:

Attached is the book launch details- if you’d like to share with the fans.- if you could direct them to Eventbrite that would be great too.

About the author:


Here’s Richard’s bio – the book reading will be at Waterstones London Wall only – one time event with Sean Bean.

Richard Old returned to his native Sheffield after 27 years working in the City of London. His career began after graduating from Trinity College Oxford, where he read Politics, Philosophy and Economics. During his time there he was elected President of the Oxford University Conservative Association. He went on to take a Masters in Early Modern History from Birkbeck College London.

At the age of 23 he was fully qualified in the USA in stocks, fixed income, commodities and derivatives, working in North America, The Middle East and the UK. The Financial Times described him as “a seasoned stockbroker” as well as “an enemy of the European Union and all its works.” He was a member of the London Stock Exchange until its replacement by the Securities Institute, of which he is a Fellow.

An acknowledged expert on the Napoleonic Wars, in particular the Battle of Waterloo, Richard is a connoisseur of the works of Ian Fleming.

He has never been to Liechtenstein.
