Richard Lear has always had a love of the Old West. He had also always wanted to write a book but inspiration for what to write was lacking. It finally hit, and it’s no wonder that his first novel is a Western. Taking three years to complete, he found the experience of writing THREE RODE THE TRAIL so joyful and rewarding that he is now working on the sequel.
In the meantime he has published a short story, THE SHERIFF OF STOVEPIPE, featuring Yulin Temple, one of the main characters from THREE RODE THE TRAIL. It is avaiable for download on Amazon and Google Play Books
Richard is married and lives with his wife and family in Washington state.
