Richard Doyle (born 1948) is a British author of thriller novels.

Doyle was born in Guernsey and, on his third birthday, was presented at the court of Emperor Haile Selassie. He has lived in Tripoli, Ethiopia, Kuwait, Kenya, Morocco, Libya, Beirut, Barbados, Antigua, France, Greece, Ireland, and the United States. Home for several years was a plantation house in the West Indies, then on Cape Ann, followed by a fortified bastide in Gascony. He spent a short time at Rugby School[1] before completing his studies at the British Army school in Tripoli. He went on to read law at Lincoln College, Oxford.[2] As a young man Doyle taught English to the Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez.

Deluge, his first novel, was published in 1976. Imperial 109 was published the following year and became a wild success in both the UK and the US, selling over a million copies.[3] His 2002 novel Flood was a best-seller and was adapted for the 2007 film of the same title. He is considered an expert on matters related to climate change and the flooding of London, he was invited to the 'London Under Water' lecture from the Royal Geographic Society's '21st Century Challenges' series in June 2008.[citation needed]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
