this Richard Anderson is a former ditch digger, a former cab driver, a former phone booth cleaner and a former game developer. There was a stint where he thought he’d be a translator and studied Russian while tossing frisbies in Red Square. Instead he went to Alaska to set the World’s Record for consecutive behind the back catches at 60 below.
He also did computer stuff in Indonesia for a couple years and has 100,000 miles on his thumb.
These days he’s a database developer in a town to the left of Berkeley, with a writerly wife, three cats and a nighttime crime writing habit.
