About RICK

My Work

My premier novel, The Sigil Masters, is a young adult, coming-of-age epic fantasy. The manuscript placed first in the 2018 Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers GOLD writing contest, and I am currently preparing it for publication.  My short stories have appeared in anthologies such as Tales From the Old Black Ambulance, Adventures in Zoopkeeping, and the Zoetic Press. Another placed 3rd in a contest honoring H.P.Lovecraft's 125th birthday and appeared in his home town publication, The Providence Journal.

My Journey

I've been writing since my teens: software, not stories. Late in life I discovered I also loved writing speculative fiction. There are many overlaps—design, debugging, peer review. I hope to continue this new journey for many years.

My Community

I interact personally with those on my Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms. I'd be thrilled to have you as part of my community!
