riorio2's Bio

Born in Connecticut, Richard has lived in such far flung and exotic locales as Pocatello, Idaho and Mauston, Wisconsin.

Richard was once a librarian, and has come a long way from the days when he was the librarian for Harley-Davidson. He spent the first part of his career as a law librarian and worked for two Chicago law firms where he learned a lot about law and law firm culture. This is what drove him to the halls of academia. It was academia which drove him out of the profession, and he now works as a graphic designer, game designer and writer.

Since 1996 Richard has been a freelance writer and designer and has written for Atlas Games, Guardians of Order, Hogshead Publishing, and Zeitgeist Games (just to name a few). In addition he designed two card games (Geek Wars: Battle for the Con and World Championship Dodge Ball) for Goodman Games.

Currently living in Chicago, Illinois with his wife, 3 cats and library of books, Richard is busy programming eBooks, designing print books, hiding from his cats, and following his dreams.

When not writing in the third-person Richard loves to cook, ride his bike, read, study and play games.
