Richard Lowe has leveraged more than 35 years of experience as a senior computer manager and designer at four companies into that of an author, blogger, ghost writer, and public speaker. He has written hundreds of articles for blogs and ghost written over a dozen books. He’s published factual books about computers, the internet, surviving disasters, management, and human rights. He’s currently working on a ten volume science fiction series, to be published at the rate of 3 volumes per year beginning in 2016.
Richard began in the field of Information Technology, first as the Vice President of Consulting at Software Techniques, Inc. Since Richard craved action, after six years he moved on to work at TWO companies at the same time: he was a Vice President at Beck Computer Systems and the Senior Designer at BIF Accutel. In January 1994, he found a home at Trader Joe’s as the Director of Technical Services and Computer Operations. He remained at that wondrous company for almost twenty years, before taking an early retirement to begin a whole new life as a professional writer.
Richard has a quirky sense of humor and has found that life is full of joy and wonder. As he puts it, “this little ball of rock, mud, and water known as Earth is an incredible place, with many secrets to discover. Our corner of the universe is filled with beings, some happy and some sad, who each have their own special story to tell.”
His philosophy is to take life with a light heart; He approaches each day as a new source of happiness. Evil is ignored, discarded or defeated; Good gets helped, enriched and fulfilled.
Richard spent many happy days hiking in many National Parks, crawling over boulders, and peering at Indian pictographs. He toured the Channel Islands off Santa Barbara, and stared in fascination at wasps building their homes in Anza-Borrego. Some of his joys include photography, and he has photographed over 1,200 belly dance events as well as dozens of renaissance fairs all over the country.
Because writing is his passion, Richard remains extremely creative and prolific; each day he completes between 5,000 and 10,000 words, diligently using language to bring the world to life so that others may learn and be entertained.
