Richard A. Anderson


~ In Memoriam ~

Richard Anderson was born on May 11th, 1951. He died on November 17th, 2002, after battling complications from diabetes. Richard is the author of the novel titled The Temple of the Heart, the semi-autobiographical tale of a monk who leaves the monastery and pursues life in all its glory. He was author Leslie D. Soule's stepfather and literary mentor. He had a noble, kind spirit and a sharp intellect to match the wisdom of his old soul. He was a monk, art teacher, and state worker.

Richard had been in the Navy, and refused to eat gravy on toast when Leslie would offer it, because he'd eaten it so much there. He was an avid reader and his favorite literary character was Tom Bombadil from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, a character whom he identified with.

All author proceeds from the sale of this story will be donated to the American Diabetes Association to help further their efforts in eradicating this disease.
