Richard grew up in Crystal Lake, Illinois, north of Chicago. He began writing seriously in high school. After careers as an award-winning journalist, an energy policy spokesman for a governor, and a communications consultant, he now writes fiction from his Denver base. "The story and characters are everything," says Dick, "with a little bit of fun along the way." His mysteries mix these elements with a dash of political intrigue and background subject matter that informs his readers. His Vic Bengston Investigation series is set in Colorado.

Richard is a graduate of DePaul University with a B.A. in Political Science. He studied energy policy under a Professional Journalism Fellowship at Stanford University, and has completed extensive post-graduate work in Political Science at the University of Colorado Denver. His four adult children, four grand children and Mom all live in the Denver area.
