Short biography
Richard is working on his third career. He worked as a carpenter for 20 years while taking college classes whenever he could. With a BS in Math he spent the next twenty-five years as a successful software engineer by working on the Space Shuttle at both Vandenberg AFB, and Johnson Space Center. He then went on to start Master Mind SofTools where he developed software for fortune 500 companies. Although he found success in those professions, he always dreamed of writing a novel. He honed that craft by taking every creative writing class he could. Somehow his poems and short stories usually had a dog as a major character. One in particular, "Begging Not for Love", was published by the Mendocino Review.

After taking early retirement in 2007, he moved to Warsaw, Missouri and built a home on the water with a view to die for. He now lives and writes at his lake home in Missouri where he and his wife are raising their granddaughter, two dachshunds, and a rescue dog that is mostly Golden Retriever. [adapted from Amazon.com]
