Rick was born into a family of writers, and raised in a home filled with a love of words and learning, which has lent greatly to his own style and works. Rick served in the England, Coventry LDS mission, then later moved to Boise, Idaho to help with his extended family. There he met his wife Heather and they were married in the Boise Idaho LDS temple. They have three terrific children and currently reside in Kearns, Utah.
As you read through Rick's books, you will see his fascination with science, medicine, camping, and a myriad of other inteterests. And above all you will find his love for his Savior, and a testimony that He lives and loves us all.
Rick loves music, woodworking, reading, serving in his church callings, and, of course, writing.
