Before 2011, Rick’s career was all journalism: investigative reporter for different newspapers and later inventive magazine editor. The two roles in the same business exposed his two very different sides: he thrives on the thrill of an investigation, and he has a creative curiosity for design and writing he could never tame. So in 2011 he merged the two and started writing fiction. In 2016 he published his first political thriller, NAKED AMBITION.
THE APPRENTICE, a serial with novice reporter Tish Woodward, was published in December 2017. NAKED TRUTH, a sequel to NAKED AMBITION, will follow in September 2018. NAKED TRUTH is another thriller with newspaper reporter Beck Rikki once again on the trail.
Rick’s is founding editor of Leader’s Edge, an international business magazine. It’s his second magazine startup.
