You have reached the website of Rick Bylina, author, someone who can tell you a tale.

Rick and Sydney Writers (3)


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 on January 17, 2054. 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. And the books keep coming.

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 has passed away. He was hatched March 17, 1992 and died December 1, 2016.


For you to enjoy the ride.

  1. “Kill All Cats” is scheduled to come out June 1, 2016 (or thereabouts). Sometimes publishing comes with its own “special” complications. Rest assured, it’s launch will be announced far and wide. It should be available at most major online ordering sites (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.). Alas, because it is self-published, if you choose to acquire it from your favorite brick-and-mortar facility, you will have to ask them to order it for you to pick up, which they will be able to do within a week or so of launch. Thanks for dropping by and liking the site.
