Richard L. Foland Jr. is an Author, Lay Speaker and former Youth Leader. He has lived a mostly nomadic life in western Pennsylvania, southeastern Ohio and (briefly) western New York. Currently, he resides somewhere in the chimney of Pennsylvania with his wife and a constantly shifting array of children and stepchildren. He hates divorce, 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. You can follow his slow descent into inanity at the Pharos Blogject, on goodreads or Facebook.
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.
