About the Author

What do you do with a degree in psychology? No good ideas surfaced, so Rich Bard bought an old boat and became a salmon fisherman along the coast of Washington and Alaska. Twenty-nine years later he came to his senses with the thought that it might be interesting to try something else. Psychology? Not so much. Maybe better to develop the writing sub-career he’d pursued in the off seasons. After several years as a full time journalist, the addictive pull of the ocean got the better of him and, with his captain’s license, he began delivering boats around the Pacific while continuing to write. Besides news reporting, he has published some short fiction; West of Spencer is his first full length novel. Bard lives near Seattle with his wife and friend Celia, who allows as how she won’t mind if she never goes fishing again (and who has a real job). Their two children have recently escaped into adult lives with only a minimum of emotional scarring.
