R. D. Raven
R. D. Raven ("Rick") is a Luso-South-African living in Germany.
Although always an artist and having tried just about every type of art and fine art by the time he was seventeen--painting, drawing, singing, acting, guitar, piano, sculpting--writing as a form of self-expression only came much later in life.
Rick's favorite movie genres are comedies, romantic comedies and fantasies. His favorite book genres include just about everything. His Top 10 favorite movie list includes: The Holiday, Love Actually, Avatar, The Lincoln Lawyer, and Boyz n the Hood.
When not writing, he makes a living as a computer-programmer with one leg in Germany and the other in the UK. He moved to Germany six months after meeting the love of his life on an internet dating site (before the boom of Facebook and other social networks). The two of them continue to live happily together since 2007. Rick believes this to be the perfect romantic story; but one he will never write.
The pseudonym, R. D. Raven, was influenced in part by the poem, The Raven, by Edgar Allan Poe.
