Richard Mueller



Following high school and a B.A. in Theater Arts, Richard Mueller served in the U.S. Coast Guard, then used his G.I. Bill to take advanced degrees in writing at Humboldt State and the University of Iowa. He was also an accomplished stage actor with over 70 roles to his credit.

He then came to Hollywood to work as a full-time writer, first in print science fiction, then in television, finally branching out into film, editorial criticism and returning to print. He also hosts "the best open mic show in L.A."
