Rick Homan

Rick Homan writes murder mysteries and suspense novels. His Nicole Tang Noonan mysteries are set on a college campus in rural Ohio and in San Francisco, Nicole's home town. Because she is a professor of art history, Nicole sees clues others miss.


In Rick’s most recent novel, The Con Man’s Son, a chilling game of hide and seek plays out on the foggy streets of San Francisco, as a private-equity investor does whatever it takes to protect his career, his reputation, and his family.


Rick grew up in Ohio and barnstormed around the country in pursuit of his academic career. He taught classes in acting and theater history, directed plays, and published scholarly articles.


Prior to taking up the craft of crime fiction, Rick performed as an actor and guitarist.


With his wife, Ann, he enjoys walking everywhere in San Francisco, visiting art museums, and posting his guitar solos on YouTube.
