About the Author

Richard Verry began life as the only son of a war veteran. As he grew, he discovered artistic talents in himself and in his parents. Dad was an excellent technician with the brush but did not seem to have a creative side. Mom was very creative and dabbled in many different mediums but lacked technical expertise. Through osmosis, Rich blended their talents with his own, to good results.

Throughout his childhood, Rich doodled in class, at home and where-ever. He sketched fantastic ships that could travel through space, water, air and underground. As he reached puberty, subject matter changed while skills grew stronger. While he never received any formal training in the arts, he experimented with a variety of media and styles, including writing, sketching, drawing and photography.

As an adult, earning a living took precedence over his talents. He married, went to college the hard way (part-time nights & weekends) and earned several college degrees in Information Technology. While this fed his creative side, he always felt something lacking. Years later and after a divorce, he rediscovered his artistic side.

He began sketching, drawing and painting in earnest. He's created quite a gallery of works which he exhibits and sells on his online gallery. He favors drawing and painting the female nude but has done many different types of pieces in various genres in in graphite, charcoal, oil paint and watercolors.

Eventually, he also began writing short stories, but never thought about publishing any of them. Then, in 2012, he began working on an idea for a full-fledged book. Dabbling off and on with written creative works, he began writing the 'Mona Bendarova Adventures' as a single book, the idea of which he thought about several years ago. He wrote a concept, a future history, an encyclopedia of the universe, and eventually, an outline of the first book. Originally, he didn't think that it would ever be published but the feedback received prompted him to decide to publish it and to write a series, of which the second book is already under development.

Richard Verry is an IT Engineer, artist and author. His artistry includes written works and an extensive gallery of drawings, watercolor and oil paintings. He lives with his long term girlfriend and partner Janet and make their home in Rochester, NY along the banks of Lake Ontario in north eastern United States.
