Richard Houston worked as a carpenter for twenty years while taking college classes whenever he could. After earning a bachelor's degree in math he spent the next twenty-five years as a successful software engineer. Although he found success in those professions, he always dreamed of writing a novel. He honed that craft by taking every creative writing class he could. Somehow his poems and short stories usually had a dog as a major character. One in particular, Begging Not for Love, was published by the Mendocino Review.
Richard now lives and writes at his lake home in Missouri, where he and his wife are raising their granddaughter, two dachshunds, and a rescue dog that is mostly golden retriever.
