Richard H. Schweitzer

Biography

Richard H. Schweitzer is an aging fledgling storyteller, and a denizen of various Los Angeles-based coffee shops and tolerant restaurants. He grew up a military brat, he has long since dropped the "military." Being the son of a sailor, he grew up in various locations throughout the known accessible universe. Mostly Texas and California. His own military experience was unremarkable, though he wrote a lot of songs while he was avoiding subordination and perfecting his skills in temporal homicide. "As if you could kill time without injuring eternity..." (Thoreau). His literary interests lean toward books with words; speculative fictional science and historical fantasy.
