Author in the making? Karen Ristevski’s step son Anthony Rickard
Karen Ristevski’s step-son has almost finished writing a book about the murdered Melbourne woman and his family.
Friends said Anthony Rickard has been working away on an autobiography with the current title ‘A life of misery: from Rickard to Ristevski’.
Mr Rickard has often fumed about his dad, Borce Ristevski, on social media. It’s believed the book will discuss his feelings toward Mr Ristevski and other family members.
Daily Mail Australia understands Mr Rickard is planning to self-publish the book, although he may not release it for some time.
‘He’s nearly finished it,’ said his close friend of two decades, Anthony Cefala.

‘We’re here to support him…He’s improved from bad experiences in the past.’
Mr Rickard this week launched defamation action against Channel Nine’s A Current Affair program for a previous TV report.
