Richard is also an award winning painter and sculptor. He has used his artwork in conjunction with creating and directing a charity golf tournament to raise many thousands of dollars to educate children on the dangers of drugs. In 2012 Richard teamed up with The Monterey Peninsula Foundation's Birdies For Charity program and with a team of San Francisco 49's players, including Brent Jones and Harris Barton, they won $20,000 for drug education in local schools. Over 200,000 kids have been the beneficiaries of Richard's efforts.
Richard lives with fellow author Mary Rensberry in Oakland, California. Along with trying to keep up with their two QuickTurtle grand children, they are currently in the throes of relocating to their new home in Fairview, Michigan.
I can be
subtle and sensitive
and willing to help.
I am carefree and fearless
Of evil and Hell. I'm pensive
unless you irk me, then
and prone to attack. I can be
slippery as butter. I am aware
as a bat. It all depends
on who you ask.
I am disagreeable
unless I agree. I am formidable
against an enemy.
I blog what I think
and I think what I say. I write
poetry and stories
for love and for play.
I twiddle with strings
in a QuickTurtle band,
I am Bard of my songs
and lord of my hand.
