About Richard Schiver

Richard has recently returned to writing after a computer crash in 2001 wiped out over ten years of hard work. Since his return he has not won any awards, nor has he achieved the bestseller status practically every writer dreams of. He has written some stories though, and he hopes you like them.

Richard and his wife share their home with four furry, four-legged, children. When he’s not at his desk spinning tales he can be found throwing the ball for their yellow lab, Max, or in his wood shop making another mess.

Richard can be contacted directly at and would be delighted to hear from you.

Review by: Lisa Schuch on July 29, 2012 :
Rick Schriver’s “Shadows of the Past” is a well written tale of the age old battle between good and evil. Through a supernatural aspect, the story takes it to an entirely new level. This is definitely not a story that has been done over and over again.
The way the author’s words flow freely makes for an easy read. With well-rounded characters, you will find yourself drawing parallels to your own life. As the story progresses, the readers will no doubt see that all the character’s have something in their past that they now regret. It is wonderful to see that even fictional characters have skeletons in their closets, as so many of us do in this day and age. I highly recommend this book for anyone
one out there.

Review by: linda on July 19, 2012 :
I absolutely loved the premise of this novel - what a great concept! This is a very graphic horror novel. The beginning was very engaging and the ending was engrossing and thought provoking. The middle, at times, was somewhat disjointed and overly graphic. I would have loved to have had the premise fleshed out at a more complex (and less graphic) level.
