Writing is Richard's third career. She moved from homemaking, to the corporate world, then retired to become a photo/journalist and magazine section writer for a local newspaper. She's an award-wining author of three books.
Books and a variety of animals were part of the family scene while raising two daughters, two sons and nurturing her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She lives in Fredericksburg, Virginia, where she is also active in her community. She says without the faith and encouragement of Jim, her late husband of 58 years, her writing career might never have been.
