The only rule: writers write! Everything else is a guideline.
You have reached the website of Rick Bylina, author, someone who can tell you a tale.
Rick Bylina (1953-2054) was born on a snowy night in New Jersey (or so he was told) and expects to die, “…wailing against that goodnight…,” with a keyboard in his lap and a story in his head. For now, he lives with his wife in the woods near Lake Jordan and the nearby town of Apex, North Carolina, listed as the number one city in which to live in America in 2015.
Ongoing corporate downsizing in the early 21st century convinced him to tap into his passion for writing rather than remain a cog in the corporate wheel. He scribbled any crazy idea that crossed his mind. After gaining discipline, he published his debut mystery novel, “One Promise Too Many” in 2011.
Writing happens spontaneously between housework, gardening, cooking, fishing, and wrestling alligators.
For those who ask and remember, Sydney, our beloved cockatiel and co-author of two of my books passed away in December, 2016. He was hatched March 17, 1992 and died December 1, 2016.
