Richard L. Foland Jr.


Richard L. Foland Jr. has lived a mostly nomadic life in western Pennsylvania, southeastern Ohio and (briefly) western New York. As his life has become increasingly more settled his faith in people, especially politicians, has become far more unsettled. He hates divorces, having been through one, and loathes large gatherings. The latter probably explains why he would prefer to sit alone at a keyboard rather than go to a party. It probably also explains why people think he might be antisocial although he would rather they called him Uncle Social.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
We were nomadic. I grew up in various places in SW Pa and SE Ohio. Having moved around jumping from town to town and state to state might be why I write in more than one genre.
What do you read for pleasure?
Everything and anything, although I probably spend more time reading fiction.
