A military retiree, Rick has traveled the world eventually laying down permanent roots in Colorado where he lives with his wife, dogs and two obstinate cats. By day, he works for a healthcare IT / analytics company; by night he imagines new and inventive ways to torment his stories’ protagonists.
A lifelong bibliophile, Rick reads widely across genres but can’t pass up a good sci-fi or fantasy novel. Dog eared paperbacks by Terry Pratchett, Isaac Asimov and Douglas Adams are his particular Kryptonite. Intent on becoming a better writer, Rick joined Pikes Peak Writers in the fall of 2018 and started serving on the board in late 2019.
When not hunched over a computer he enjoys travel, spending time in the mountains and live music. Dislikes include bad movies made from great books and talking about himself in the third person.
