I had the pleasure of reading "Heart & Soul" while Richard was completing a last edit. Just as the title states, Richard has put his heart and soul into the writing of this book, lending a biographical touch to many of his poems and short stories. They relate to the human consciousness of man's deep passions from within the heart and soul. There is a sense of family throughout the book, as depicted by photographs of Richard’s family members, which makes "Heart and Soul" not only an enjoyable read but one you won't easily forget.
