Rick's work has been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and the Boston Globe, among others. Rick's young adult creation, Alfred Kropp, has firmly established him within an entirely new demographic.

Birth Place
Miami, FL 

Rick is a native Floridian and a graduate of Roosevelt University in Chicago. He earned a B.A. in English which he put to use as a field officer for the Internal Revenue Service. Inspired and encouraged by his wife, he decided his degree might also be useful in writing books and in 2004 he began writing full-time.

Since then he has launched two critically acclaimed series: The Extraordinary Adventures of Alfred Kropp, for young readers, and The Highly Effective Detective, for adults. Both books are set in Knoxville, Tennessee, where Rick lived for ten years before returning to Florida.

Rick lives with his wife, Sandy, his three sons, two dogs and one lizard.

Additional Information

Alfred Kropp II - The Seal of Solomon is being released May 1, 2007. The next Highly Effective Detective book will be out in Spring 08.
