Background Information

 

              
Richard King was born in the small town of Leslie, Michigan, where he graduated from High School and from Jackson Business University.  He spent 21 years working for his home town bank, from which he retired shortly after the premature death of his wife (a result of breast cancer.)  Several years after retiring, he followed his two sons to Florida, where for the past 20 years he has resided on the Treasure coast in the little town of Jensen Beach.
 
During the recent years he began to feed his passion to write and now has 4 titles to his credit. His first book, PURSUIT OF LIFE hit the market in October of 2010. Since that time he has self published his next three titles, THE PRICE OF FREEDOM, NICE & NAUGHTY and THE HINTS BOOK ALMANAC.  All have hit the market during the year of 2011, with autographed copies available at discounted prices through King’s website titled: LIFE IS POETIC,  lifeispoetic.webs.com/   The site contains numerous samples of the poems included in each book, or in the case of THE HINTS BOOK ALMANAC, samples of the hints contained in that book.
 
Though King has been writing for nearly 20 years, it’s only been in the last few years that he considered publishing his works.   He says he has recently found out that, “This part time author stuff isn't so part time anymore, but I haven’t had this much fun in years."
