Meet the Author

After focusing on technical and historical writing, Richard moved to Jacksonville, Florida, and turned his attention to writing novels, taking his passion for history with him. All his novels are based on real events and real persons—their good and their bad. His novels can best be described by a comment made during his introduction at a North Florida Writer’s Conference. “Don’t expect the same old cookie cutter novel with a different name and a new twist at the end. Expect real people in real situations, with real talents and real shortcomings.”
