Get to know Richard...

Birthdate?  5/19/56

When did you start writing? The moment I could.

When and what and where did you first get published? My first paid short story sale was in October 2008 when Ray Gun Revival published "The White Knight Is Talking Backwards."

Why do you write? Discovery and clarification. 

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? One of the reasons I write science fiction is because it seems to be easier for me to come up with ideas and plots.  Futuristic settings help me liberate my writing from simply tracing my own life. 

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? I usually say Herman Melville and "Bartleby." One of my favorite SF stories is "Night" by John W. Campbell.

What are you trying to say with your fiction? Read me. 

Do you blog? Where? No.

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say? What? I have to write this too? OK.
