Richard’s bio will be up soon.
I’m always looking for fiction with a happy ending, witty writing, voice- especially in women’s fiction- and diabolically clever plotting in mysteries and thrillers. I would also like to see non-fiction with a strong point of view that’s fresh and for the popular market. As with everyone in this industry, I want something new and unique but still marketable. I am a member of Romance Writers of America and the Association of Authors’ Representatives.
