John Richmond’s newest book, Savant, was released in June 2019

John Richmond’s newest book, Savant, was released in June 2019. It is a story about Michael Avery who has autism but is also a savant. He uses his incredible intellect and eidetic memory to become a world class detective. Michael also shows an unwavering, almost fanatical, need for truth and justice. At age 8, his father was murdered basically right in front of him and the case went cold. Michael takes on his own investigation to bring his father's killer to justice.

"Savant" also serves another purpose and that is to help continue to bring awareness to what autism families face. The reader is taken into the mind of Michael and shown what some of the struggles are with this condition. “My entire purpose for writing is to bring autism awareness and fiction writing is just another avenue for me to do this,” states Richmond.

His son was diagnosed on the autism spectrum just after his fifth birthday and John began writing as a coping mechanism to deal with the grief he and his family were experiencing. John realized he had been given a new mission in life and soon published his first book, a memoir of their autism experiences titled Totally Lost: A Brutally Honest Assessment of Raising a Child on the Autism Spectrum.
