My name is Richard E. Gropp. I'm a 30-something guy … a Seattle native, transplanted to Florida, then transplanted back to Washington. I have undergraduate degrees in Psychology and English Literature from UC Santa Cruz. I'm an ex-bookstore clerk, ex-accountant, ex-dot-comer, and I'm currently taking time off from the gainfully-employed world to work on my dream of becoming a fiction writer (thanks, mostly, to the support of my wonderful boyfriend of 10+ years). I'm a fan of genre fiction (primarily science fiction, horror, and detective fiction).

One of my stories was recently published at Daily Science Fiction. Follow the link and give it a read!

Breaking news: My first novel, Bad Glass (Grand Prize Winner of the Suvudu Writing Contest, 2011), JUST CAME OUT. Here's the Amazon link
