Rick Stepp-Bolling


I’ve been writing poetry and fiction for longer than I can remember, but my money-making occupation was as a community college professor in Southern California. My life is currently filled with writing, golfing, and taking care of animals. My wife I look after a menagerie of rescue animals including dogs, cats, turtles, tortoises, horses, a pig and innumerable snakes. Some people think I draw my writing inspiration from my animal friends, and while that does ring true (especially from Penny, our rescued 500 pound Russian sow), life in general offers me enough challenges to inspire the slightly off centered approach to most of my stories. SMOKE AND MIRRORS, my collection of poems, and AUTOCIDE, my collection of short stories can be found on Amazon. PATCH MAN, the first in a fantasy series has been published by Crimson Cloak Publications.
