Richard’s first novel, the award-winning Love, Loss, and Lagniappe was inspired by actual events in his life, and utilizes his Medical and Business School background to explore the journey of self-discovery after heartbreaking loss, while revealing the scientific basis for the meaning of life. (You’ll have to read it to find out!)

Richard’s next novel, Panicles, explores the price of fame and fortune through the eyes of two families, one wealthy and powerful, the other blue collar, from a chance meeting at a Florida poolside, to the highest levels of politics and power. This sweeping saga of love, war, money, and power leaves each family weighing their duty to their family versus service to their country. It all leads to a fateful choice—a sacrifice—which could change the course of history.

Richard lives in New York City and New Orleans with his love and inspiration, Lisa, his wife of thirty years (and counting), near their beloved grown children.

COMING NOVEMBER 2018: Love, Loss, and Lagniappe (Inspired by Actual Events)

Life is good for Dr. Drew Coleman, a successful young eye surgeon living in Uptown New Orleans, and he knows it. Having met and married his beautiful medical school classmate, Kate, the two settle happily into the routine of raising their two young daughters.

Drew’s charmed life is soon shattered by devastating news, causing him to go on a ten-year transcontinental journey of self-discovery, during which he explores the nature of God and Man, the divine inspiration for many of New York’s landmarks and artistic treasures, and the relationship between the found and the lost souls passing on the street. He meets a number of memorable characters, including the young blue-haired runaway, Blue, who renounced her given name when forced to leave her Minnesota home with her girlfriend, Anna.

In time, he discovers and explains the scientific basis for the meaning of life, and is finally found, or finds himself, setting the stage for a bittersweet and memorable ending.

I’m a professional thrifter, the father of four children, and an avid runner. I was born and raised in Georgia, and spent time in Oklahoma, California, Connecticut, and then Oregon, as an adult. I’m a graduate of Oregon State University and now reside in North Georgia, raising my family, near family.

My first book, The Earth Bleeds Red, was released in 2013. I took a few years off from writing to start my own business, and my second book, The Lights Will Never Fade, came out in Jan 2018. My new contemporary suspense/thriller series, An American Family, is coming in the fall of 2018 from Evolved Publishing.

I’m a bit of a free spirit who enjoys working from home, traveling around, looking for treasures to share, and creating worlds that otherwise would not exist. Thrifting and writing are my two passions, and I’m fortunate to be able to do both.

COMING 4 MARCH 2019: CLOUDS FALL LIKE FIRE

On his eleventh birthday, Jamie White watched his father die. His mother passed a few years later, leaving him alone. He became a professional poker player at nineteen, married the love of his life, and they raised three kids in suburban Ohio.

On his fortieth birthday, it all comes crashing down.

When tragedy strikes, Jamie sells everything he owns and embarks on a journey across the country as a modern-day nomad, living in casinos. He meets a much-needed friend along the way, a blackjack dealer named Isabella who captures his heart, but he struggles to explain his past—and what, exactly, happened to his family.

When a mysterious car appears during one of his trips, Jamie fears that someone is following him. He settles near the Oregon coast, hoping for a new future, but death threats, along with eerily specific mentions of his past, start appearing underneath the windshield wipers on his car.

Isabella travels to Oregon to see him as their friendship grows into a deeper love, at the very time Jamie is trying to make sense of why anyone would want him dead. As he battles his regret for moving on from his family so quickly, he tries to unmask his stalker’s identity. Can Jamie and Isabella survive this unknown enemy? Will their love heal his deep wounds? Or will Jamie face the unthinkable… again?
