Biography

I think a lot of us have a book in our hearts and heads that keeps us company and wants to be written.

When I retired, instead of buying a new car I took a trip to Rome. While there, Emperor Hadrian’s name came up at the Pantheon. This temple to the gods had been built around the first century, and burned twice, but he had his architects rebuild it. I had previously visited Hadrian’s Wall in 2002.

It was as if Roman Emperor Hadrian took over the English romance novel I had planned and made it his own. But I’m not complaining. This novel has been a joy to write. I hope everyone who reads it enjoys it.

I could never have done this without the help of everyone at Writers Village University -WVU.com. I began by completing the F2K class twice, which is free. Another great help to those of us who wish to complete a draft of our novel is NANOWRIMO.COM.

I would be happy to give anyone encouragement if you want to write your own novel.

  • Dangerous Presence on July 21, 2012

    This author has written a most entertaining murder mystery. I particularly love how the writing is clear and concise. It reminds me of the style of my favorite mystery writer, Lee Childs. I could hardly get my work done for wanting to read the next chapter, and the next, and the next. Congratulations to this great new author. I will now be watching for her next book. LKK

    If I were Siskel and Ebert I would give this book Two Thumbs Way Up. I must admit toward the end, I was dragging my feet, like you do when a book is really good and you don't want it to end. Yes, it is blasphemy toward organized religion but it gives you tons of Bible verses to back up its premises. And besides, it's pure entertainment. There's a prequel which I recommend you read first. The Road Trip Dialogues. Ms. Richards is a great writer and has certainly done the homework - for you! And you don’t have to dig out and dust off your Bible. She lays it all out for you. I only hope there will be a third book. Linda Linda
