Richard Hein was born in the Pacific Northwest, though he spent some time living in Wisconsin and Illinois before moving back to Washington with his family in 1987. He’s lived in the scenic Skagit Valley since then.
Interest in writing began early by writing stories for his classmates in Kindergarten, winning a young-authors award in the Sixth Grade, and spending much of his high school classes writing instead of learning.
Richard spends his days as a server administrator and website programmer, working on writing and prolific reading in the evening. His first series, the Divine Order Saga, is now available in most formats.
