Richard A. Lehman, writing fiction as 'Arty Gold', was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1948. He attended Worthington High School where he managed to graduate in 1966 and went to Ohio State University where he managed to attend one specific class which proved to be of absolutely no use to him later in life. C'est la vie.
He has been joyfully married to Kathryn, the love of his life, for more than thirty years. Why she puts up with him is still a mystery.
His first novel, "Holding The Bag", (eBook available on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Holding-Bag-Tapone-Novels-ebook/dp/B005T636VK/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1325423700&sr=1-1) has (so far) been awarded no prizes but - maybe later. He is currently at work on his next two books, "Up A Creek" and "A Crooked Mile", both should be available in 2012.
He and his family spent a summer living in a Maya village on the Yucatan peninsula where he continues to work with a local pastor leading short term Christian missions (www.missionmaya.org). Much of the local color in "Holding The Bag" comes from his long experience in the Zona Maya of the Yucatan.
