Building a retaining wall for a patio

After being turned down by our insurance company to pay for the rebuilding of a dry stone wall which retains a patio, I have decided to build a new wall and myself over the winter months.

I need a plan to build a wall with sufficient integrity to support the load of the patio. The wall would be about five feet high as the garden slopes down. I need a steps access to the garden and want a serpentine contour to make it interesting. Has anyone any advice or book recommendation with load and material details. I would appreciate some guidance. Thank you
