|Richard was born and raised in Southern California. From the age of
7, Richard lived in Apple Valley,
California, the home of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. After college he worked as a loan officer, and as an
insurance and mutual fund salesman. Richard moved to Iowa in 1995 and is divorced with custody of his
15-year-old son, Justin.
It was during the summer of 1998, while caring for his son, that Richard attempted to write this first novel. In three short months it was completed--and Richard discovered the gift he has for telling a heart-pounding story.
Currently Richard resides in West Des Moines, Iowa with his son, Justin and his partner, Robin.
