Rick is a Christian writer who has participated in more than 50 mission trips to Russia and Ukraine. In part, his writing helps to fund his missionary activities.
Although writing is basically an "indoor" activity, Rick appreciates opportunities to get outside and try new experiences, which have included skydiving, mountain climbing, rappelling, canoeing, kayaking, wilderness hiking, white-water rafting, and a high-ropes course through tree tops. All experiences in life provide fuel for this writer's imagination.
Rick has sold over 200 articles and short stories. To date, he has 3 published novels: The Methuselah Project, Gunner's Run, and Kiriath's Quest.
Rick and his wife Pam live in Indiana. They have two adult children.
