I'm Michael Rich. I was born in Glendale, California in 1962. I've lived in California my entire life and currently reside in Northern California with my daughter. I'm a single parent; my wife passed away in 2011. I have always enjoyed writing and I studied creative writing in college. So far I have published one novel, but more are on the way. I'm currently working on the second novel, which has a working title of "The Preserve." I am also going to publish a series of short stories that are already completed, but need editing and formatting. If you like this first novel, "How I Did It," you can look for the short story collection in early 2015. I also enjoy writing songs (I play guitar and sing), golf, and alpine snow skiing.
My writing is inspired primarily by four writers, in alphabetical order: Albert Camus, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Aldous Huxley and Jack London. I am not as talented as any of those writers, but their writing inspires me, informs my writing in subtle ways, and sets a standard of quality that I aspire to.
If you buy "How I Did It" and you like it, I would welcome a posted review. Thanks for checking out my Smashwords profile.

How I Did It
by Michael Rich
The future has arrived, but history has come to a hard stop. A well-meaning industrialist named Jasper Jennings has spent several decades creating a highly functional dystopia. Many years after his death, the Jennings family discovers a manuscript that seems to provide a roadmap of how he came to control the world and how humankind may some day chart a new horizon.
