Richard Heredia was born in 1969 in the Canal Zone of Panama City, Panama. Having spent the first year of his life there, he has since moved to Los Angeles, California where he lives with his wife and children. Wanting to be a writer at a very young age, he began learning his craft through avid reading, after his mentor suggested he read as much as possible in order to learn from the best. Since that summer day in 1984, he has never stopped.
After college and a successful career in the Tech Industry, four years ago, he finally decided to sit down and commit himself to his lifelong dream of writing novels. He is the author of the first two volumes of the Saga of the Twelve’s – The Unwanted Winter and Winter’s Fury - as well as book one of The Shadow Seed. The Misbegotten is the first title of the series - a unique science fiction tale that is both edgy and erotic, published in June 2013.
Aside from reading and writing, he enjoys listening to music, dancing with his babies, camping, fishing and playing the odd video game with his son.
Keep an eye out for the third volume of the Saga of the Twelve’s – The Shroud of the Lesser - due out in Summer 2014.
Richard has slated Estefan’s Death, Book Two of the Shadow Seed Series, for publication sometime in 2015.
