About meAuthor Website: https://www.richellegoodrich.com

I was born in Odgen, Utah in 1968 and spent the next couple of years growing up in my mother’s care (helped by her family) while my father served as an Army Sergeant in the Vietnam War. Luckily, he returned home safely, and I made the adjustment to having a permanent dad in the house. My brother was born shortly afterwards, and all four of us moved to Washington State where my parents discovered that not every inch of the so-called Evergreen State is actually green. In truth, a large portion mimics the desert—which is where we set down roots.

My parents completed their family with two additional daughters that resulted in three girls to one boy, a circumstance that made sibling rivalry unequal and often unfair. My brother ended out with his own room while I shared a room with my two sisters—an already-small area that was divided with masking tape into personal corners. You can imagine the childish fuss that was made when someone had to step across a dividing line to enter the only closet or to make a run for the bathroom!

I was very blessed to have a mother who was willing to enroll me in ballet, tap dance, gymnastics, girl scouts, piano lessons, as well as a short bout with the viola and the guitar. She faithfully drove me from school to lessons to home for years. Any artistic talent I have is owed to my parents. My dad sketched cartoon characters for me and my siblings when we were children, while my mom created beautiful oil paintings. Their examples inspired me to pursue art in both high school and college.

After growing up in a small, desert town, I graduated from the local high school with honors. From there, I worked my way through college at Eastern Washington University where I received two bachelor’s degrees: one, a BA in Liberal Studies and the other, a BAEd in Math/Natural Sciences Education. It wasn’t until I was older, married with three boys, that I developed an interest in writing. That in itself is a long, curious story which you can read about on my author blog (https://regoodrichnews.blogspot.com/2012/05/whatever-made-you-want-to-write-book...) Since then, I have self-published ten books. My book quotes have been published in a number of places including the Oxford Philosophy Being Human Course Book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Christmas in Canada, and in a Revlon magazine ad campaign.

Writing has become a sweet adventure. I write whenever and wherever opportunity presents itself, even during waits in line at the grocery store. I have learned to use bits of time wisely, knowing that small accomplishments add up quickly. I prefer to write in complete silence whenever possible; it seems my muses are more apt to visit me in a calm and quiet atmosphere. If you want a glimpse into my head, I am an Alice in Wonderland girl—curious, creative, watchful, always pondering, always learning.
