About the author
Hey! My name is Richard Fierce and I’m a fantasy and space opera author. I’ve been writing since I was a child but began publishing in 2007. Since then, I’ve written multiple novels and short stories.
In 2000, I won Poet of the Year for my poem The Darkness. I’m also one of the creative brains behind the Allatoona Book Festival, a literary event in Acworth, Georgia.
A recovering retail worker, I now works in the tech industry when I’m not busy writing.
I’m married and have 3 step-daughters (pray for me), three dogs (two huskies!), three cats, two ferrets and a fish. Basically, I have a zoo.
My love affair with fantasy was born in high school when a friend’s mother gave me a copy of Dragons of Spring Dawning by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman.
