More About the Author

R. Richard Biography:
I'm the co-author, with Sunset Thomas, of Anatomy of An Adult Film.

I have 44 novels and over 150 short stories currently published.

I spent my early years in the part of Los Angeles known as the South Central. I was known as Whi' Boy, which was sufficient to indentify me in that place. I'm a skilled kung-fu player, using a system that I learned from a Korean I knew only as 'Pak.' It would be easier to tell you the places that Pak wasn't wanted by the police, rather than the places where he was wanted by the police. Pak's kung-fu system, augmented by some bits and pieces from some Chinese practicioners is quick and effective, or I wouldn't be alive today.

My early education was mostly obtained by stealing books from the public library (I always returned them and the Librarian even began to provide me with reading lists.) I did go to high schools, but I never really learned anything there. I eventually graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles, UCLA, with a degree in mathematics.

I work as a Systems Analyst and also make a part of my living as a professional gambler (legal in Nevada.) I write science fiction and erotica. My published novels are:

I have not finished the book yet. I am on Chapter 8 right now. All, I can say so far is that I am very Impressed. Ms. Thomas takes you from the start of a young Lady in dancing in a topless bar to much much more. She even takes you into the minds of what a Lady is thinking. Plus, how nervous she is step by step. As she moves up in the adult entertainment world. Ms. Thomas even tells you the technical side of things too. There really is a lot that goes into a movie and the steps to become a star. This book is a must read for anyone that wants to know about how a movie is "filmed" or anyone intrested in a career.

Format: Paperback
certainly the first 5 or 6 chapters are truly an anatomy of an adult film. Actually, probably really good and down to earth information for anyone thinking about getting into the business. The last 8 chapters or so are much sexier. Although still not as titillating as reading truly pornographic literature, it was reasonably exciting. This is the first book of this type I have read; a friend promised to send it to me if I wrote a review. Overall, it was a quick read and the last half was entertaining. Go ahead and read it one weekend, but don't expect a blockbuster novel.

Format: Paperback
Ever wonder what goes into making a porn film? Sunset goes into behind the camera she leads you through the preparation, location and staffing from top to bottom, and little secret things one would never think of. Sunset a.k.a. Princess of Porn is a lady who has gone through all phases of what some may think as the taboo world, a world she feels comfortable in, a world that has been with us since the beginning of time. She sets forth her philolgy on this suject. This is not a story of her life you can find that on internet, this book brings to the reader her philosophy of being in a star role, and yet keeping her feet on the common ground.

I found the book interesting,entertaining and educational.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Piero San Giorgio on August 28, 2009
Format: Paperback
A great, fast readable book that will tell you lots on the West Coast porn industry and more! If you know (and have seen) the work of Sunset Thomas, when reading the book, you'll probablyalso see which movies, and which porn stars and directors she refers to. which makes it all the more fun to read (in a gossipy way!). While the first part is really on how some porn actresses start and live the life of porn movies, the second part - even more interesting - is about the extras: brothels, private parties, etc. - I am sure more could be told on these - perhaps on a sequel??.
overall a afun, kinky and enjoyable book to read!
