Richard A. Custer



My name is Richard Custer and I'm a 44 year old, African-American residing in Chicago, IL. I've had to make some important changes in my life due to nagging back issues. So a career change was needed. I've always enjoyed writing and felt my writings could someday fulfill a life long dream of becoming an author.

I've been writing since the age of nine and I enjoy telling a story and having the reader immersed within the characters. I'm a identical twin and when I'm not doing things like cooking, playing video games or doing homework, I love to write in my spare time.

My friend Author Joshua Graham once told me: "Don't ever let anyone or anything discourage you. Keep writing and keep getting the word out. It's a marathon rather than a sprint."

Smashwords book reviews by Richard A. Custer

  • Upgrade on April 26, 2011

    Upgrade is a very good romance novel, with a twist of sci-fi flair added to the mix. I must admit I was craving more sci-fi than romance and some parts of the novel did move slowly but it didn't fail to keep my attention. I could relate somewhat to the Character of Brent for what person doesn't struggle with their desire to be physically attractive to the opposite sex. I was somewhat surprised at the ending and I'm guessing you'll be to when you read Stephen Hise delightful novel.
