Short biography
The fact that Rick Blechta (pronounced Blek' ta) has been a musician all his life is clearly apparent in all his writing. He brings a musician's viewpoint to the thriller genre in much the same way Dick Francis used his experiences in the world of horse racing. The results are "most entertaining" (Regina Leader Post). All of his novels have been critically praised for the "insider's knowledge of the music world" (Canadian Book Review Annual) which he injects into his plots. But Blechta has been equally praised for his "engaging characters" (Globe and Mail) that are "always convincing, never phony or stiff" (Regina Leader Post).
