Richard Joseph Zazzi
RICHARD JOSEPH ZAZZI was raised at a winery in northern California owned by his traditional Italian family and was a therapist for nearly twenty years. Now retired, he and his wife have three grown sons and live in a remote part of Hawaii. They share their home with Bobo, a German Shepherd/Border Collie mix, and Tiggy, an alley cat.
Writing for several years now, he has published four fiction novels. Currently, he is working on a sequel to the Arctic Rose, a light-hearted mystery with characters from Hawaii. Richard likes to incorporate elements of history or political/societal conflict into his work.
An avid reader himself, he enjoys fiction and non-fiction alike. When he is not reading or writing, he loves to pass time playing his guitar or listening to music. His favorite musical performers, among many others, are Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, and many of the old Blues artists.
Finally, his most treasured activity is to spend time with his wife and, whenever possible, the rest of his busy family.
