About Richard X. Ellison

Richard Xander Ellison grew up in South Africa on the east coast. He began writing stories to share with friends and family when he was just 8 years old...he's never stopped. A child of the technological age, Richard is able to disassemble a computer to its squiggly bits and put in back together in 20 minutes flat!

He is an avid gamer, musician and film buff...enjoys very short walks on the beach or looking at it from a distance while at his apartment in the city.

After two false starts to his tertiary education with journalism and music, he spent a year as a blacksmith's apprentice before taking a series of ridiculous jobs in the information technology sector. A few years later he befriended a successful author who rekindled his passion for writing. After accidentally spending six exciting years in the marketing field he decided that it was time to share his first novel with the world.

Richard writes for at least 6 hours every day. 90% of his correspondence is to the post office, asking why his royalty cheques don't seem to be arriving.

Not overly good or bad. Focus on the fall of one man who failed to make good choices and/or adapt to the world around him.

I've read everything by Richard X. Ellison and this has the haunting tones of realism that I found in Purgatory Blues. Exceptional story. I agree with the first reviewer, this must be something that a lot of people are going through. This story was a punch to the gut! Highly recommended!

Good story. Probably a lot of guys close to this situation.
