About Rick Shaw
Though always an avid reader, Rick’s interest in writing fiction started as a student in the community college system, with a pair of extraordinary English professors, who taught him to write effectively through creative writing. Thirty-plus years later, their impact is evident through two degrees in History, a Masters of Knowledge Management, an incomplete doctorate in Medical Information Science, and a career in higher education administration managing information technology operations.
Rick remains a life-long learner, writer, and professional geek; though somewhat creatively fickle. His interests span science fiction, alternate-history, adventure, and political thrillers, and his current work-in-progress, a novel, The Tunguska Deception, is anticipated for release in 2020
An USAF veteran, husband, and father to four amazing young men. Rick & his wife make their home just yards from the San Andres Fault.
