R. Vincent Tibbetts


R. Vincent Tibbetts was raised in Western Pennsylvania during the 1970's when the professional football team captured the heart of a city. The town immersed itself in a culture of winning until the sudden death of the steel industry. Witnessing the economic shockwave ripple across communities from the gutting of such an industrial might had an impact on his psyche. It led him to see his surroundings in a new light, growing to have an appreciation for the workings of the natural world, how things work, and developing a mindset for conservation. His interests in art, photography, and film production brought him to California and a career in the entertainment business where he is a Chief Lighting Technician and Studio Electrician. He is an entrepreneur at heart. His hobbies include beach volleyball, softball, golf, hiking, camping, and surfing. Red Planet Pioneer is his first literary endeavor. He resides in Long Beach, California.
